The most important aspect of a democracy is participation by the electorate. Those who vote shape our local, state and federal government by determining who we want to serve our best interests and the matters that we as women voters care about. Don’t let anyone tell you your vote doesn’t matter.
Both Dutchess County and America are at a crossroad. Your vote can help determine which direction we take.
Beginning in 2020, we are launching a Get Out the Vote campaign, which includes writing postcards to friends and neighbors encouraging them to vote in both the local and state primaries and election. Look for other community events like picnics, public debates, and ongoing dialogue to encourage Dutchess County residents to vote over the next several months. If you wish to volunteer your services or have an idea on how to get more of your neighbors to vote, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
