When you hear the word "government" you probably think of the elected officials who represent us, make the laws, and enforce those laws. But here's the thing: we are all a part of the government. If you vote, you are doing your own part in government participation. It's a more important role than you might think! If you want to do an even better job in your role as a voter, then you should spend time learning a bit more about government and politics. There are so many resources that can help with this, and our blog is just one of them.
