These are 5 reasons why you should register to vote today.
Registering and voting is as easy as pie.
It’s true. Possibly even easier. All you have to do to register is visit our Rock the Vote website and go ahead and register! It only takes about five minutes. Once you’ve registered, you’re all ready to cast your ballot at your local polling station.
You got options! You can register to vote online, by mail, or in person.
Enough said! Check out 866ourvote.org/state/ for specific options in your state. And if you’re not sure if you’re registered to vote already, it’s easy to check!
Voting is a way you can share your perspective, and your perspective matters.
“Voting is a tool in a larger toolbox for social change,” our CEO Alexis Anderson-Reed wrote in an article with Prism earlier this year. “Electoral justice isn’t just about casting a ballot; it’s about how we can use elections as a tactic to set ourselves up for a truly liberated future.”
Elections have consequences.
Every election, you have the power to decide on the quality of life you want for yourself, your family, and future generations, but first, you have to register to vote! Voting is your chance to stand up for the issues you care about like public transportation, raising the minimum wage, or funding local schools. This is your life: take the time to help decide what’s best.
Registering to vote makes sure you can help advocate for those who can’t.
Do you want to make a positive impact? Voting gives you that chance! Support the candidates and ballot measures that can help your community, state, and even the nation for the greater good. Make your voice heard in these elections. Children, many incarcerated people, and others are ineligible to vote or to register. You can help push for issues relevant for these different people, helping make sure everyone in our communities is looked out for.
