And always remember, local election matters. For example, local government manages a lot of different things – and their decisions directly affect your life. Think schools, policing, affordable housing, public transportation and so on. Moreover, State and local governments lead the way when the federal government isn’t. Many critical policies—minimum wage, women’s right to vote, environmental protections, marriage equality—all began at local levels.
