Voting and Democracy

The right to choose elected officials who will be champions for our children and youth is fundamental to achieving our policy goals and investments to support families.

While the District of Columbia may not be a state (yet), we have taken important steps in recent years to make our democracy more inclusive and to engage more voters in the process.
