The 2022 Election Cycle is one of the most important of our lifetimes.
Use some of these helpful resources to make sure you're prepared for the polls!
Harris County voters this year should remember to vote the entire ballot.
This year's ballot will have two sheets. You can check out this helpful video for instructions on voting with a two-page ballot.
Why should you cast a vote in every race?
Local government can often accomplish more than state and national.
The tangible changes that we want to see happen in our everyday lives usually happen at the local level. Not only are these races incredibly important, but they are often decided by fewer votes than national and statewide races so individual votes matter that much more.
Local leaders frequently go on to lead at the state and national levels.
Great candidates can be harder to come by than many expect. Local positions can help sculpt strong community leaders into fantastic representatives at the statewide and federal level.
Local elections bring community together.
Improving a community happens largely at the local level. From public works, to safety, and much more, these local issues require community discussion. Placing a greater emphasis on down-ballot races is a great way to help facilitate that discussion.
