Need another reason for voting in the Nov. 5 general election for city government and school board positions? “If you care about where you live, consider that your local vote will have thousands of times more power than your presidential ballot.”

The General Election is Tuesday, November 5. Are you voting?

Consider a few things:

  • First, your vote has more influence at the local level. Chris Green’s article, “Making Local Matter,” gives an idea of the power of your vote in local Kansas elections.
  • Second, what local government does affects you from public safety to the quantity and type of local housing to the quality of schools.
  • Third, it’s your right to vote and your responsibility to vote informed.
