Do local general elections really matter?
If you’ve wondered if it’s really worth your time to vote in the upcoming general elections in Frisco — it is. And here’s why your vote matters.
Local government impacts your quality of life – every day
Our local government representatives have a lot on their plates. They make decisions every day that can impact your life. Things like school quality, public safety, growth planning, local transportation and investments in roads, immigration reform, and even how much you can be taxed on your home.
Every vote counts in local elections
Local races can be won or lost by just a few votes. And, off-year elections typically have lower voter registration turnout, so your vote can have an even greater impact. Want to live in a city you help design? Unless you are running for a seat, your vote in the local elections is the next best way to do it.
Taxation with representation
Local taxes are always a hot topic. Researching and voting for candidates that share your vision of your community is the best way to have a voice in how your tax dollars are spent.
