Why do you vote?

The Howard County League of Women Voters is running a "Why I Vote" Social Media Campaign and we hope you can participate.


If you'd like to be featured, please send us an email with your information and reply "YES" to give us permission to use your information.

Please send an email to: [email protected]

Include 3 things in your email:

  1. a "selfie"
  2. a caption/title for yourself
  3. a sentence or two explaining why you vote

We will format the information into a consistent layout - just like the images seen above and below.  We plan to use these during the primary and general election to encourage people to vote.
