#YourVote counts every year. Change can only begin with each registered voter in cities and towns across the country, radiating upward; local, state and national politics remain essential building blocks toward reform.
As the 2022 midterm elections near, and in the wake of the January 6 attack on democracy, it is never too early to begin registering, researching and reflecting on an important question: What are you voting for? Explore the myriad of issues – from the economy and climate change to education and immigration – that will be top of mind for today’s voters with films told through the voices of the American people that tackle the big questions.
Follow the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok, and tell us what issues matter to you using #YourVote.
