When we are politically active and engaged, it helps to build stronger communities that can work together towards the benefit of all of their citizens.
Whether you grew up watching your parents regularly vote and could not wait to cast your first ballot, or you never had strong civic mentors, voting is one of the most important steps one can take to shape society's future and maintain a strong democracy.
But in order to exercise this right and privilege, we have to be prepared: and the first step is to register to vote!
With the spread of COVID-19, election day may look very different in the coming months.
