Election 2022

Voting is the way we as citizens of the United States and its component states, counties and cities express our opinions and preferences. We are periodically asked to mark our ballots for candidates for various offices and to weigh in on proposals to change or enact laws, impose new taxes and many other kinds of questions. Voting is the cornerstone of our democratic process.

BY: - February 15, 2022

Republican gubernatorial candidate and former U.S. Sen.
