YES! I want to improve our democracy!
Ever thought: where do my elected officials come from? They seem so out of touch! Why aren't they more accountable to people like me?
YOU can make a difference!
Many elected officials start at the local level -- in elections for school board, city council and mayor. Participation is stunningly low: 15% or fewer voters participate across 30 major US cities.
When voter turnout is low, the voices of the few (including moneyed interests) drown out the many and accountability disappears.
Pledge now to vote in your local election + mobilize one new voter. Just sign below and we'll provide all the info you need!
It's an easy and effective way to:
GOAL: 11 signatures
- increase elected official accountability
- strengthen our democracy
Thank YOU for for being a person who cares about your community!
