Politicians know how often you vote

How often do you vote? Odds are, your lawmakers know that answer better than you do.

Elected officials – or anyone else who wants to pay for it – can purchase information from local election boards that gives them fingertip access to names, addresses, dates of birth and voting frequency for all registered voters. The only requirement to obtain this data is a signed statement verifying the information will be used solely for political purposes, such as campaigning.

Think about it – if politicians see you’ve been registered for years but you only bothered to vote once or twice, your phone call, letter, e-mail or face-to-face meeting will have much less impact.

If you are not even registered, your input means even less to them.

The key is to make it difficult for elected officials to vote against your wishes. If you don’t vote regularly, they know it’s a pretty safe bet you won’t bother to cast a ballot for another candidate on Election Day.

So, be sure and take the time now – with the elections only a few weeks away – to make sure your voice is heard Nov. 7.
