    Each year, Congress introduces thousands of proposed laws on issues that affect us every day.

     

    However, voter turnout was at an all-time low in 2014, at just 36%.

     

    In 2016, over 100 million eligible Americans did not vote at all.

     

    Millennials and Gen.Z make up America’s largest generation in the electorate. Yet even with the record-breaking turnout of 30% at the 2018 midterm elections, voters aged 18-29 accounted for merely 13% of nationwide voters.

     

    If you don’t vote for your own interests, who will?

    As our two-party system is becoming more and more polarized, it's individual issues that matter.

    The 2014 election lacked a "dominant national theme", with no single issue rising above all others. Perhaps affected by the lack of a single key issue, nationwide voter turnout was the lowest since 1942.

    The 2016 Presidential election ultimately came down to a handful of swing states because of the electoral college.

    Think your vote doesn't matter unless you live in a swing state?

    WRONG!
    If no candidate gets 270 or more Electoral Votes, The US Constitution says that it is The House of Representatives who must choose the President. So, no matter where you live, it is important to elect your Member of Congress (and Senators) too.

    36%

    Voter turnout in 2014 was the lowest since 1942.

    232 Democrats & 197 Republicans

    in the House of Representatives, a predominately 2-party system.

    Over $3 Billion

    spent on Congressional campaigns.

     

    And while in office, reps spend time fundraising.

    On the floor 135 days

    That's just 37% of the year.

    18% Approval Rating

    Yet 91% were re-elected by voters in 2018.
