What is your freedom worth to you?

EXERCISE YOUR FREEDOMS: FREE SPEECH, RELIGIOUS CHOICE, RIGHT TO EDUCATION, RIGHT TO VOTE, ETC.

SUSAN B. ANTHONY SAID, "THERE WILL NEVER BE COMPLETE EQUALITY UNTIL WOMEN THEMSELVES HELP MAKE LAWS AND ELECT LAWMAKERS." SHE FOUGHT FOR AND WON THE VOTE, BUT LESS THAN HALF OF THE ELIGIBLE WOMEN USED THEIR VOTE IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

Remember, your vote makes your voice count on the issues you care about most. Every eligible voter, male and female, should USE IT!
