“Voting symbolizes our freedom to determine our future by having a say on what decisions should be made in our society and choosing who will represent us in our government,” said ASI Chief Government Relations Officer Mateo Maya. “Voting affects every aspect of our lives, from the roads we drive, to the taxes we pay, to the education we receive. It is a privilege, and it is important.”
