School board elections are tomorrow, May 11. We shared with you last month why they are so important. The next important step is making a plan to vote tomorrow.

Decide if you’re going to vote before work or during your lunch break. Find out which polling place works for you. Double check before leaving. Click here to find out more from our partners at First State Educate about the candidates running and where to vote. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Elections are one critical way to engage with our local communities, but there are many other ways to become informed citizen of our state, our country, and our world. This week in Delaware, while school board elections are happening, our state general assembly will also be meeting to discuss and vote on bills about topics ranging from this very topic of civic engagement for our students to teacher residencies to paid family medical leave. Now is the time to get involved: Click here learn more about your representatives, when committees meet, and how to participate in hearings.

Today is a great day to get involved.
