It is easy to rationalize that your vote doesn't matter in the larger scheme of things. However, our future depends on mobilization and making our voices heard. No matter how much money political interests spends in advertising or lobbying, it is ultimately the collective voices of the people and our members, via their votes, that determines who represents them in their union, local and national offices. Please vote!
