Just because the Presidency isn’t up for grabs this year doesn’t mean you shouldn’t vote. Here in Atlanta, we’re electing a new mayor, several city council members, board of education members, and county commissioners. The mayoral race is national news.
These off-year elections tend to have low turnout, but local offices are important. The people Atlantans (for example) elect today will be making decisions about taxes, infrastructure, the school system, and other important issues for years to come. If you’re eligible, please vote.
