I vote because I can. I vote because it’s my right. And when I can, I like to help other people exercise their right to vote.
I remember Election Day 2008, sitting on the floor of an empty storefront with my fellow volunteers, calling voters to remind them to go to the polls. I’ve registered young voters turning 18, and squeezed elderly voters into my compact car to drive them to their polling places. Helping my fellow Americans to vote, whichever party they cast their ballot for, is a meaningful way to participate in our democracy.
While education has not been a hot topic on the national stage this election, the legislators that we elect up and down the ballot will have an impact on the educational experiences of our students and children. So be sure to cast your vote!
ACTE is a nonpartisan organization that does not support or oppose any candidate for public office.
