Woman to woman...it's time to VOTE!



A letter from the women of the YWCA to you...

Woman to woman, the 2012 elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. 

You’ve registered to vote, and you’ve read up on the issues at http://www.ywcavote.org,  but do you know where you need to go to cast your ballot on Election Day?

Woman to woman, this is an important moment for us to act to make the future better for women and girls.

Your voice should be heard!  Your choices, the votes of you and thousands of other women will impact the futures of the women and girls in your life and your community.

YOU are powerful!   Show it by going to the polls on November 6th.

Exercising your right to vote isn’t about choosing a side. It’s about taking the outcome of the upcoming election into your own hands.

The women’s vote can sway the election – it’s our chance to make history while taking a stand on the issues that are most important for us.

Woman to woman, on November 6th, go out and vote to support initiatives to empower women and girls.

Vote to ensure comprehensive health care for women that include reproductive health care.

Vote to support the enforcement of hate crimes legislation that protects all people from violence on the basis of race, sex, gender, religion, ethnicity, age, disability, or sexual orientation.

Support these acts and vote for the candidates that support them to ensure the health, economic security and safety of  women and girls in the future:
