How to vote

One of my proudest moments in life was becoming an American citizen at the age of 18. The promise of freedom and opportunity that this country has to offer has always motivated me to make a difference, and that includes exercising our sacred right to vote. Whether you’re a regular voter or you’ve never registered to vote, it is critical that we make our voices heard in this election. You can now choose to vote by mail, in-person during the new 9 day early voting period, or in-person on Election Day. Find out more below and help us usher in a new day in District 39.
