Vote on Nov. 2

The Nov. 2 election is especially important because those elected to the state Legislature and the governor's office will oversee redistricting, a contentious decennial process that will impact elections for the next decade. Redistricting can shift power from one political party to another simply by moving district boundaries by a few streets or miles to include voters who are more (or less) likely to lean Democrat or Republican.

These elected officials have an impact on how much you earn, or whether you have health benefits or a pension. If you care about these, then you must vote this year! To see a list of recommended candidates, click here.
