HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Every year your City, County, and State convenes to decide what it will pay for the next year. What they decide has a huge impact on how to government serves your community. Want to have your say?
Attend Candidate Forum
In the lead up to local elections, community groups such as the League of Women Voters hold candidate forums and debates in which candidates speak directly to an audience about what they want to do and how they want to do it. Want to make an educated vote?
Run for a Board or Commission
You don’t have to run for office to serve in your government. There are numerous local and state bodies called Boards and Commissions which advice elected officials on important issues such as healthcare, housing, public safety, and planning. Want to be an expert and advise the decision makers?
