Why is the National MS Society telling you to vote?
Voting is one of the most important and easy ways to make your voice heard in your community and beyond. It is important that people living with or affected by MS share their stories and views with their elected officials, and take part in electing the officials who best represent them. Plus, voting is a way to stay engaged with your community and the issues that affect you.
We can't tell you who to vote for, but we have provided resources to make you an informed voter.

What if I can't make it to the polls? Can I vote by mail?
