Enrolling and special voting

Make your decision

When you vote, you are choosing people to make decisions on your behalf. That’s why it's important to know what the candidates stand for and what they plan to do if they’re elected.
Learn more about who you’re voting for by checking out their profile statements, arranging to meet with them or have a discussion on the phone, or attending a “meet the candidates” event.
