Education Votes

EdVotes
friend,
When you step into the voting booth this November, you’ll be making a choice that will affect students across America for years to come. But how will you decide?

At Education Votes, our mission is to ensure that every student, regardless of zip code, gets the best education that our great nation can provide. But we will never reach this goal without holding politicians accountable at the ballot box.

To truly address the issues that matter most to the students in our communities, we need to hear from you.

What issues matter most to you? How can we ensure your elected officials are held accountable?

Education funding, vouchers, healthcare, voting rights, college affordability? These issues and more affect students across the country every day. And that’s why we want to hear from you.

Take our brief issues survey >
As a public education activist, you’re in the know about the local issues that matter most to students, parents, and voters. And that’s what makes your answers so important. With your help, we can identify the topics that will help ensure a first-class public education for every student and hold politicians accountable for their progress.

Parents and educators across the country are standing up for their students, but without public education champions in office, there’s only so much we can accomplish.

Please, take a moment to fill out our brief survey and let us know what issues are most important to public education activists in your community. Our nation’s students will thank you.

In Solidarity,
Carrie Pugh
NEA Political Director
