Our founder, Sam Walton, once wrote that, “We go out of our way to instill a sense of community involvement in our store management and associates so that they’ll be even better citizens…it’s a constant effort to make everyone work on community involvement, working hard every day to improve the ways in which we give back to the communities we’re in.”
One of the most important ways you can become involved with your community is by voting. On Nov. 6, 2012 you and your fellow Americans will have the opportunity to the elect the President of the United States, as well as select hundreds of state and local leaders, 13 Governors, 435 Members of Congress and 33 Senators.
Each and every one of these elected officials has the ability to shape legislation that affects each of us and our communities. To help you and your family, friends, colleagues and co-workers participate in these elections, there's WalmartCommunityVotes.com.
Over the course of the year, you’ll be able to identify the candidates running to represent you, view their bios, find a polling place, link to nonpartisan and bipartisan voter resources, and share your thoughts on what issues are most important to you this election year.
Who – and what – you vote for is your decision. WalmartCommunityVotes.com is dedicated to providing you with the resources, tools, and information to help you make that decision - in a non-partisan and objective format.
