Take Charge of Your Concerns in Any Election

Updated on July 10, 2013

It's your money--keep it!

Excercise your right to vote even in non-presidential elections.

Always Vote--Your Money is on the Line!

In populous cities, where I have lived all my life, I have finally learned the importance of voting.

Even for very localized taxes or city councilmen selections, there is a great need to voice your opinion. For instance, there are three counsel seats up for grabs in my district. These councilmen (and counsel-women, too, of course, sorry!) contact politicians at the state level when their districts are affected by stupid laws, such as the "Amazon" or "Nexus" variety of laws of which I have written previously.

Several of these state politicians lost their seats last year. Sure, in the US, odd year elections often don't carry that much fanfare. But your vote is important at all levels because pressure is put on higher levels when tax revenues are lost.

This could be your access to work, property tax, sales tax, etc. It is pretty well known that the rich can afford slick accountants while the poor just try to make it from week to week.

      Hi, I agree, sometimes I feel that I am so fed up with them that I don't want to bother, but I always do it in the end, there's no point in arguing about what they do if we don't at least give it a go to see if we can get the right one elected, thanks nell

      Thanks. I agree and at one time had a hesitation: I thought if I did not know how to vote on all issues and politicians, I would not vote.

      I abstained only on one this election, because the ballot has to be in the mail on time. I did not have enough time to research. My stance in this election is taxes, there are way too many of them.

      The beaurocrats that did this need to pony up that people don't have the kind of money they did before and inflation is rampant.
