2018 Midterm Election: Register to Vote!

Your guide to resources to help you make an informed decision in the 2018 midterm elections in November.

Midterm Elections Matter!

"Far too many Americans downplay the impact of midterm elections. The ability to shape Congress influences legislation as well as the president’s ability to enact the administration’s vision and programs. In this era of heightened partisanship in Congress, it is of vital importance that Americans voice their opinions at the polls. And we don’t mean voting by omission. Midterm elections are the times when we can voice our approval or displeasure directly to our Congressional representatives.

Congress takes the reins on budgeting and legislation. Voting once every four years exercises a mere fraction of our civic right: midterms matter!"
