i think local government might be where we feel the greatest impact to our daily lives.

Can you explain this. This is interesting thing that people are talking about . During the vote someone have the power to throw out mailing vote or computer clinch that cause the change to vote. I am concern my vote count, but the one of the person who have the power make the vote win. This has happen few election long ago . How can we trust those who handle the vote to sent letter to mailbox or vote from using computer .

hi

pay attention to the political environment all the time, not just during election seasons. you not only make yourself aware of the nature of the politician, but you learn how decisions effect our environment over time. then, when ideas are presented, you're able to look beyond the surface to foresee potential future impact and make more informed decisions

Love all information being shared from each of you all. Learning lot more today.

excellent analogy with the house

Hello! We’re nearing a crucially important election in the U.S.Election results will have a far-reaching impact on youth, families, and children.

Here at DCARA we strongly support youth voting rights including your right to accurate information and full participation in the political process.Here at DCARA we are deeply honored to host a Deaf youth-led event, “#WhyWeVote”.

The event will be a discussion between two groups: A group of Deaf adult leaders, activists, and artists and and Deaf youth leaders from here in Northern California.The first group includes: Melissa Draganac-Hawk, President of NAD, Zahna Simon, a professional dancer, choreographer with strong academic and professional background in science, and finally we have Nicholas Sanchez, voting rights activist. In our second group will have two phenomenal youth leaders from here in California: Reza J. Mosher, representing California School for the Deaf, Fremont, and Jennifer Homberg, representing Ohlone College. The event will be Saturday, October 17th, from 3:30-5 PM Pacific Time.

You can watch in one of two ways: YouTube or Facebook Live. I sincerely hope you can make it. If you have Deaf youth in your life please encourage them to come and encourage them to vote.#WhyWeVote.

Seriously?! Seriously! Guess what I just found out?! We have one final Deaf leader joining us tomorrow: Joseph Lewis, Election Correspondent for the Daily Moth! See you tomorrow!
