Today Is National Voter Registration Day

Published: September 25, 2018

Voting is one of the most important things we can do to effect change in our local communities and now, more than ever, we must hold our elected leaders accountable. As you may know, SMART has a special stake in our local communities. It’s where decisions are made on transit funding, whether new projects will be approved, whether PLAs will apply to those projects and what wage rates will be set at for our industry via Davis Bacon.

Unfortunately, millions of our neighbors aren’t registered to vote.

Are you one of them?

Voter registration is easy and takes just a few minutes.  Register to vote at www.SMARTVote2018.org where we have made it as easy as possible to update your voter registration and check on your status.

We also hope you’ll tell your friends and family about our union’s online voter registration tool. In order to hit as many households as we can, we’re asking you to forward this email to 5 friends who might need to register or re-register — and ask them to join you in using #NationalVoterRegistrationDay on September 25 throughout social media.

Remember, the more of us who vote in our local communities, the stronger our union be will and the more resources we will have to maintain workplace, wage and living standards for all of us. Thanks for taking a few moments to strengthen your community – and our country – with your voice.
