Your Vote is Your Voice

What does the right to vote mean to you?

To me, voting means having a voice in the choices presented to us as a community. It's democracy in action and as much a responsibility as a right.

For why 100 others vote, visit

Today is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting American women the right to vote; yet, similar to how the Declaration of Independence was simply the start of our country's fight for a more perfect union, this did not automatically guarantee voting rights for all women.

As we commemorate this historic milestone, celebrate how everyone wins when women vote, taking action to fulfill the responsibility of casting your own vote in this fall's elections:

🗳 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝗴𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘃𝗼𝘁𝗲. If you live in North Carolina, you can do this online, right from the DMV's website.

🗳 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗸 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀𝘀𝘂𝗲𝘀 𝗺𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂. If you are a small business owner, maybe you want to make sure your future workforces are properly educated, that your community has the resources to keep your employees living here or ways to make healthcare more affordable. Maybe you are interested in transportation so you can get from home to work or entertainment easily or environmental protections so we can breathe and drink water safely. Use your values in your vote.

🗳 𝗘𝗱𝘂𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳 𝗼𝗻 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗰𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱 with regards to the issues of importance to you. Rather than relying on ads, visit candidates' websites. For incumbents looking to be re-elected, review their voting records as well as the percentage of legislative sessions they were scheduled to attend versus how many they did actually attend, including lieutenant governor. Learn how each candidate will best support what you are needing and seeking from them. Take action now!

Have you invested time in evaluating your options for voting on November 3rd? If not, when can you make that happen?
