Your single vote can make the difference in upcoming school budget votes and board elections!

Make sure you go to the polls Tuesday, May 19 and vote on your local school budget - and spread the word to family, friends and co-workers to make sure they put voting at the top of their "to do" list.

The state's undemocratic tax cap requiring a supermajority of "yes" votes unfairly handicaps local communities seeking to invest in their schools above the state-dictated formula. That makes it even more essential to cast your vote on your school budget.

NYSUT local unions across the state are using phone banks in regional offices to get out the vote - amplifying postcard campaigns urging voters to the polls.

Decisions are made by those who show up. On Tuesday May 19, you can show up and help make the decision about whether or not your community invests in your local public schools.

Show up. It matters.
