10 Reasons to Register and Vote
It's your money. The county commissioners, governor, state
officials, legislators, president and members of Congress you vote
for will decide how much of our wealth to invest in public services
and how to fairly share the tax burden.
It's your children's education. You elect local and state
school board members who set public education policy and budgets
that will affect how well prepared your children and grandchildren
will be for the future. Decisions by our legislators, governor,
members of Congress and president also affect the public schools--
and the quality and cost of higher education as well.
It's your job. Congress, the president, the governor and your
legislators influence what job training is available, minimum wage,
pay equity, fairness in hiring, health insurance through your
employer, job and pension security, and workplace safety.
It's your health care. Actions by the governor, legislature
and Congress as well as their decisions on Medicaid, Medicare and
private insurance laws determine your access to health care.
They're your highways. Nevada’s population and traffic are
growing rapidly. Your county commissioners, legislators, governor
and members of Congress decide what highways are needed, what
alternatives to highways such as public transit to support, and how
to pay the bill.
It's your Social Security. The president and your members of
Congress decide how much payroll tax you pay, cost of living
increases and benefit schedules for your Social Security pension,
and what Medicare services you receive and share payment for.
You live in Nevada. Your county, state and national elected
officials set standards, enforcement strategies and budgets. They
plan and zone where roads and industries will be built and how
public lands will be used --decisions that can determine how and
where you live and work.
It's your neighborhood. The elected officials and judges you
vote to retain make daily decisions about crime prevention, laws and
law enforcement, safe and affordable homes, traffic patterns, where
to put schools, parks and recreation.
They're our children. We do our best to keep them healthy,
fed, safe, educated and cared for. The officials you elect set
policies that affect all Nevada families in pursuing their goals and dreams.
