Voting in governmental elections is not just a citizen's right and duty but also an opportunity to support candidates who share your values. This has never been more important than now, when the two corporate parties increasingly present candidates who are billionaires, multi-millionaires, persons of dubious moral character, and/or persons who simply do not share your values. Surprisingly, only a small portion of the adult population actually votes, so we are represented by this small sector. Change this, vote, and then further participate in the government process in your community.
Voting in 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, now highlights the several voting options. Choose the voting method with which you feel most comfortable--early mail-in/absentee, early in-person, or November 3rd General Election Day in-person--but VOTE! Help your friends, family and neighbors to get out the vote.
If your schedule or military/overseas service prevents you from voting on the general election day, then vote early at the court house, or with a mail-in/absentee ballot.
SUPPORT YOUR VALUES by registering to vote, or checking that you are properly registered, and then vote for RANDY AUXIER FOR ILLINOIS 115TH.
