This year there are two important elections. NAACP Branch Elections and the 2020 General Election. Here is where you will get all the information about both elections

2020 General Election

WHY VOTE?  White people vote more consistently than non-whites. Older people vote more consistently than younger people. Wealthier people vote more consistently than poorer people. More educated people vote more consistently than less educated people. And the sum total of all of this is that candidates that appeal to older, wealthier, more educated white people have a built-in advantage over candidates that appeal to all the other people.  Voter education can turn these stats around.
