VOTING & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT? ...THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT

Every election presents the
same question to voters...

“Who do I vote for?”

Like most things, there’s an app for that.

1myVote is a free, non-partisan voter app with candidate information for President, Senator, & Governor races.  In Wisconsin, State & local races are also included.

The creators of 1myVote app,
want you to be able to say:

“My Vote Matters.”

Become educated.
Know your candidates.

We at the Natural Family Expo like what this app is all about - providing information about elections and candidates.  

We want to help reinforce that voting is an important right and responsibility!
