In many communities, Election Day is less than month away! With presidential debates under way, it may seem like our next important elections aren’t until the presidential primaries in early 2016. In fact, there are thousands of important state and local elections happening across the country this Election Day – Tuesday, November 3. We hope you’re planning to participate in any elections in your community and hope you’ll encourage your loved ones, both near and far, to do so as well.
