WHY ARE SPECIAL ELECTIONS SO SPECIAL?
Special elections happen when a lawmaker dies, resigns, or gets a new job in the government. They occur all year round, every year. With low levels of funding and low voter turnout, you might think these elections are no big deal—but they’re actually hugely important.
We don’t have to wait for the next election cycle to start making a difference.
