"Not voting is the same as giving away your voice. We, as carpenters, need to make our voice heard and elect politicians who go to bat on issues that should matter to us, like healthcare, pensions, and Davis-Bacon. Elections have been won and lost by a few hundred thousand votes. Imagine if all 500,000 or so of us Union carpenters capitalized on our unity, came together as a Brotherhood, and voted! We could change the election in our favor. So get out and vote. Make sure your voice is heard!"
