The right to vote is an essential foundation of our country’s democracy. Ordinary men and women have fought—and even died—to protect the people’s right to vote, without coercion or interference. Yet states across the country continue to pass voter suppression laws designed to limit our voices.
We in America have the most unique election processes in all of the world. Nobody can force you to vote or punish you for not voting. If you wish to vote and then, go no further, you may. However, if you wish to become really involved in electing government representatives who will work on our behalf, you have that opportunity as well.
We urge all members of Local 455 to be as politically active as their time and circumstances permit. Each election season we have the opportunity to elect government officials who enact and enforce legislation on all levels of government which affect all of us. Voting is the manner in which we, the people, have a voice in choosing government officials to represent us. We urge you to make your voice heard!
