We’re just one month away from Election Day 2022! As we head into the final weeks, here are some ways you can prepare to make your vote count for kids. 

Know your candidates!

There’s still time to learn who your candidates are and their positions on issues that matter to you.

  • Check these websites for candidate information for your district: 
    • Find your district here
