“Our ability to participate in government, to elect our leaders and to improve our lives is contingent upon our ability to access the ballot. We know in our heart of hearts that voting is a sacred right – the fount from which all other rights flow.” ~ Stacey Abrams
A friend and I put together some short videos, to help citizens on how to take 5 minutes a day, to spend on our democracy. We believe that 5 minutes for democracy is a manageable way to ensure we are registered to vote, we can contact our reps about important issues, track our reps, compare candidates in an election, and vote.
