Union voices, union votes!
The primary election is here. It is critically important for every union member to get out and vote, and to make sure our families do the same. Together we can make our voices heard, supporting those candidates who share our priorities of strong public services, good jobs at decent wages, workers' rights and retirement security--and opposing those who stand against us.
Election Day is Tuesday, March 18. Polls are open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Click here to find your polling location.
