America is at a critical turning point in 2018. The very future of our nation may be decided this year, and it will happen in the voting booths of our local communities.

First and foremost: VOTE!
The general election is on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
But don't stop there - you are MORE than a vote!

It does not take much to make a difference, and a little goes a long way. The best way to start is by just going to some campaign events near you. Hear your candidates - ask them questions - and get to know them. Take home what you learn and share the word with family and friends. Encourage everyone to vote!
If you worry about the state of our world and our nation, imagine how it will be if your efforts brings in a change you want. You can make a difference - it is happening all over!
