REGISTER TO VOTE!
The first step to having your voice heard.
If you are already registered to vote, sign up to get Vote By Mail (same as "absentee ballot"). To sign up online, click HERE. Or call the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections at

"Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble. Voting and participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society.
You must use it because it is not guaranteed.
You can lose it." - John Lewis, 1940-2020
