Expected low turnout means your vote matters more
Historically, turn out for primary elections – especially in a non-presidential election year – is very low. In November 2008, 70% of registered voters cast a ballot, but in the May 2006 primary, only 12% of voters did the same. That fact of electoral politics means your vote on Tuesday is actually an opportunity to make the voices of workers and working families count even more. The smaller the pool of voters picking the winners in an election, the more your decision to participate matters. Find your polling place. Click here to see the list of candidates.
