Cornwall votes logoWhy Should I Vote?

The truth of the matter is simple:  When you do not vote, you let others speak for you.

We have fair and democratic methods in place for selecting who will be responsible for budgets totaling millions of dollars and services such as drinking water, roads and sewers, recreational services, schools, etc.  To not take part in the process or to feel like your opinion doesn't matter, would be to waste the incredible power that you possess.

The power of a single vote is staggering. It is your right to stand up and be counted and the way you do that is by casting your ballot.  Have your say about your quality of life!

  1. be 18 years of age
