Elections Quotes


With a simple flip of a switch, press of a button or punch of a card, we have tremendous say over the direction our town, our state and our country go. Voting is the sacred duty and responsibility of all citizens and election quotes help us understand this right and privilege and how our vote can impact our future. Elections quotes show us that we are merely part of a longstanding tradition of peacefully changing the guard in a democracy, something that was impossible to imagine before 1776 when leadership often changed by revolution or revolt.
