Why Do Local Elections Matter?

  • This November, you will have the opportunity to vote in municipal elections, or what are commonly known as “off-year elections.” These are elections for positions like district attorney, commissioners, sheriff, auditor, magisterial district judges, and state superior court judges.

    What do these people do? How do their decisions affect you? How can you evaluate candidates and decide who to vote for? In this program, students will learn about elections at the local and state levels, why elections are important, what types of issues might be of greatest significance to college-age voters, and how local and state elected officials can affect these issues.
