Elections will affect public policy
Members of the CPA profession pride themselves in making informed decisions based on their knowledge of a situation and verifiable facts. Whether you vote regularly or never vote, it's important to remember our elected leaders set the rules the profession must follow every day, and voting is one way to have a say in the direction those policies go.
Another way to make an impact, and more directly, is by talking to candidates. CPAs are respected, trusted advisers and elected leaders value your insight. If you're not familiar with the candidates, you have about six weeks to learn more about them. You also have six weeks to let candidates know what issues are important to you, your business or your clients -- so it pays dividends when they become lawmakers.
