Voting is your Superpower!

Voting is one of the most powerful things you can do for your family and community. People fought and died for the right to vote and it is our civic duty to vote in EVERY election!

Elected officials create laws and control billions of dollars that impact our everyday lives and YOU get to choose who you trust to take on this important role. Don’t give up your power and your rights! Your choice matters and your vote matters.

Learn how to rock your vote here. As a benefit to our New York Charter Schools Association members, we are offering to schedule virtual or in-person sessions for your school or come to your school and register your students to vote. If you are interested please contact Natasha Cherry-Perez @ ncherry-perez@nycharters.net or 917-274-7125.
