You are more informed than the average voter. You understand the consequences of increasing taxes and decreasing freedom. Your neighbors, your kids, and your life depend on you getting out and voting April 2. And whether or not you vote is a matter of public record.

That’s right, whether or not you vote is a matter of public record. If you want people to take you seriously, you need to vote. Every political organization looks at the voter rolls to see who voted and who didn’t. They cross-tab voters to organization membership. Organizations with high voter turnout get attention. Organizations with low voter turnout get ignored.

More Than 200 Tax Increases Are On the Ballot in Missouri on Election Day

That includes an increase in the sales tax for St. Louis City and St. Louis County, school bond issues in Kirkwood and Rockwood among many.

There are county and municipal office elections.

And every election has consequences.

The easiest way to increase your influence in Jefferson City and Washington DC is to vote and to pool your vote with members of active organizations that vote.
