Weekly Legislative Outlook

 Make Your Voice Heard and Your Vote Count!

Voting is how we raise our voices and move the issues we care about forward. It’s how we protect the things we care about and change the things we disagree with.

If you would like to join UnidosUS in registering new voters, you can add the “Become A Voter” button onto your website. We can share a unique link just for your agency, so we can track how many voters registered through your site. In the next couple of weeks, we are reaching out to Affiliates who have already shared they plan to add the button and want to extend this invitation one more time to Affiliates. If you are interested in participating, please contact me.
