Get Heard Guide Local Elections Edition
While contacting your elected officials has become a much more modern and tech-savvy interaction, it is still one of the most important civic duties we can perform outside of voting. And the good news is your voice matters even past your vote! Why? Because after an election, officials begin to set priorities and get down to the business of creating policies that will impact your daily life. In many cases, fiscal and budget issues are a high priority for newly elected officials, so it’s good practice to express your concerns or thoughts at the outset of their terms and continue to follow up afterward. This guide will help you navigate the process and allow you to be heard by your elected officials.
