Election Day

Election Day falls on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, so in our case today is Election Day. While we aren't able to vote yet, it is very important to, once we turn eighteen. Voting is a way to show how you feel about policies and propositions that will effect our community, state, and nation and to choose who you think would be the best fit in representing us in office at the local, state, and national levels. Check out the table below comparing the two major parties.
