LOCAL ELECTIONS ARE ON THE BALLOT THIS YEAR
In order to make real change, we must start at the local level.  Here is a list of the positions on the ballot this year, including School Board and Township Supervisor!!!   

WHAT ARE PETITIONS?
Candidates wishing to run must first get enough signatures from voters to show they have community support. Candidates who wish to appear on the Democratic or Republican ballot in the primary election must file "Nomination Petitions." These are documents signed by registered voters, who are enrolled members of the party. For more information, click here

WHY DO STATE & LOCAL ELECTIONS MATTER?

State & Local Elections Matter

 "The stakes of local elections might not be as widely reflected in the media as they are about the Presidential Election, but local elections have real consequences. Whether it is the guarantee of having healthy drinking water or the benefits of maintained streets and bridges, infrastructure is a concern that should remain on the forefront of voters’ minds as they consider the candidates of a city-level election."

"Apathy and low turnout should not continue to define local elections. Although the media and general civics education play a large role in fueling this lack of democratic participation, the causes are not as important as the steps that individuals can take to have their voice heard. Individuals can research candidates and their stances on issues, and then proceed to vote based on the information that they have learned. There are ways to stay civically engaged in local politics even beyond voting. If someone feels particularly passionate about a candidate, they can even reach out and see if there are any volunteering opportunities available. Additionally, a person could start attending community meetings or begin to voice their opinions to their city council members." 

 

"There is no trade-off between learning about federal elections and local elections, and, as such, people should take the time to become informed about their local elections. Local elections have important consequences and voters should not dismiss them. The aforementioned issues only scratch the surface of what local governments can address and voters should do their part to ensure that these concerns can be resolved." The Harvard Political Review
