Our votes matter. Be the change you want to see!
Speak Up and Vote is a grassroots movement encouraging the people of Joliet to get out and vote on the issues that impact their communities.

Another Voter Registration event in the Books! Thanks “One Joliet Coalition” for participating in our Community Voter Registration Drive! At the end of the day, one can attend all the council/mayor/county board meetings… If you don’t register and vote, you don’t count!

Why should you vote in the upcoming local election?

  • Vote for leaders who share your values
  • Your vote keeps your local officials accountable because you push towards change that is transferable on a federal level
  • Support access to quality health care in your community
  • Voting shows you care about your community because you are doing what you can to create positive change 
  • Protect local parks
  • Ensure good schools for your children 
  • Have a say in how your tax dollars are spent in your town
  • Ensure adequate funding for local colleges so that tuition is affordable 
  • According to the Will County 2019 Consolidated Election, voter turnout was a disappointing 13.16%
  • Lower voter turnout in local elections actually means YOUR vote has an even GREATER IMPACT!
