- Issue: July 22 is National Low-Income and Homeless Voter Registration Day. Topics being discussed from Washington D.C. to our own City Hall - housing, jobs, public safety, and more - have a great impact on people who are low-income or homeless. Yet when it comes to electing those people controlling the government purse and government policy, poor people are far more likely to sit it out. Then wealthier folks make the decisions. You can get involved locally to help change that.
