Registering to Vote is Important. Here’s Why:

We are living in unusual and rough times. With many issues rising in our nation and communities it must be noted that we must learn to voice our concerns. I believe that everyone should vote as we all have an opinion and a say in what goes on in the political world. We must come to realize that our vote can have a great impact in our future and the future of our next generations.  

Participating in elections is one of the key freedoms of American life. Many people in countries around the world do not have the same freedom, nor did many Americans in centuries past. No matter what you believe or whom you support, it is important to exercise your rights.

Individuals who are already registered to vote, can fill out an online pledge card. Research shows that people who complete a Pledge to Vote (PTV) and plan how they will vote, are more likely to vote. This is important because it still allows for engagement and commitment from individuals who are already registered.

Online Voter Registration Colorado is lucky to have online voter registration. Any eligible voter who has a valid CO issued ID card can register online in 10 minutes.

The 2020 election is coming up on November 3, and Mountain Family Health Centers is committed to ensuring our community’s needs are heard. Ensure you are registered and encourage your friends and families to do the same.
