Why You Should Vote
Voting is one of the best ways to get involved in the democratic process. It is how we ensure that we have a government that is representative of us. All of us. So that we have elected officials who will work diligently to address and protect the public values of the people.
Think about the issues you care about. It could be wanting more funding for education. Or for transit system to run probably and to stop raising the metrocard fare. Maybe it’s universal health care, or for just the potholes to be fixed on your street.
Whatever matters to you, there is a candidate out there who is advocating for those issues to be fixed. Not only is it our right, but our civic duty as American citizens to go out and vote. It is important to exercise this right and not underestimate the power and the impact your vote can have!

Our volunteers are at the heart of Dominicanos USA (DUSA). DUSA is pioneering the way in which we engage young people and adults by instilling them with pride and building political power. Our mission is to empower Dominican Americans by ensuring they exercise their civic rights. To date, we have registered more than 150,000 people to vote, and our most recent initiative, the DUSA Citizenship program, provides a path toward citizenship for legal permanent residents. The programs we have implemented help enhance the ability of our community to engage civically. DUSA volunteers are compassionate people who volunteer and spread the word about our services, ensuring we keep people connected. Please consider volunteering with Dominicanos USA.
