OUR 2016 DEMOCRATIC TEAM
Lake County Democrat Chairman John Buncich Announces Register the Region Campaign
The Lake County Democratic Central Committee and the Lake County Young Democrats are proud to announce a new initiative for the 2016 General Election – Register the Region.
The goal of the Register the Region campaign is to register 10,000 new voters before the voter registration deadline on October 11, 2016.
Additionally, the new collaboration will work to deliver a 100,000 vote plurality for the Democratic Nominee for Governor John Gregg and help every Democrat running for public office in Lake County.
Chairman Buncich said, “After four years of the current Governor’s constant attack on workers and pushing a radical social agenda rather than investing in our communities, he has hurt our region and our state’s economy. Lake County voters have had enough. I am excited about the Register the Region initiative. We will work hand and hand to organize volunteers to register individuals throughout Lake County to ensure that Lake County voters turn out in record numbers.”
Lake County Young Democrat Chairman Alfredo Estrada said, “We are proud to partner with Chairman Buncich who enthusiastically embraced our strategy to register 10,000 new voters, and to elect our Democratic Nominee John Gregg as our next Governor with a 100,000 vote plurality from Lake County. For the first time in recent history, our organizations will coordinate volunteers to walk door-to-door, make phone calls, attend public gatherings and utilize a strong social media program to reach our goals.”
“…the vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice…”
Lyndon B. Johnson, August 6, 1965
Reasons Why YOU Should Vote!
Voting is a way to speak your mind and let your voice be heard!
Your vote is your voice. When we vote, we are actually telling elected officials and lawmakers how we feel about education, public safety, social security, health care and other important issues.
One voice, one vote really does count!
Remember: there is power in numbers, and when we vote and get our family members to vote, we can truly make a difference. If you don’t vote for what you believe in, others will and you may not like the outcome.
Our children are depending on us to represent their voices too!
Because our children can’t vote, we have to do it for them. That’s how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing and other issues heard. When we vote, we are looking out for our kids and their futures.
Voting changes communities!
Do you ever wonder why one neighborhood gets passed over for things it needs, while another seems to get it all? One big reason is voting. When we vote, we can get results that we can actually see.
Vote to effect change!
It was through elections that we voted in officials who were champions for civil rights. Voting is our chance to make a difference in our own lives and within the world.
Believe it or not, voting is a way of honoring our history!
As long as our country has existed, there have been people who didn’t want us to vote. There were several freedom fighters that stood up for the right to vote. Well, those times may seem ancient, but there are still people today who don’t want us to vote. It’s now our turn to stand up and vote to preserve the honor of those who went before us.
Last but not least, because it gives you credibility!
Often times, we voice our concerns to elected officials. But if we aren’t voting, our concerns may not matter at all to them. Voting can actually give you the credibility to make your concerns a top priority for legislators.
