If it’s a Tuesday, there is an excellent chance that an election is happening somewhere in the country. So far in 2019, we’ve seen that enthusiasm for turning out to vote isn’t where it should be. I encourage you to help promote these elections wherever you can.
There are a number of elections scheduled in May. If one of these is in your district, make sure you vote! For everyone else, please share this with your network to spread the word in order to increase awareness and turnout!
Click on highlighted text to learn the specifics about that election. You can also always go directly to your state’s election website (lookup HERE) to learn more.

Note: I keep a lookout for any state and federal level elections and list them all in these monthly post, but I could use your help to find any local elections. If your city or county has an election and you want me to add it to my monthly roundup post, write me a comment and I’ll add it to the appropriate post. Thank you!
