American Engineers Fully Participate
in the Political Process
day in America, politicians vote on laws that will
directly impact the lives of engineers. Many of these
laws involve highly technical issues; issues that
engineers are uniquely qualified to comment on. The
question is: how do you get your politicians to
first step in ensuring that politicians hear
engineering voices is for engineers to vote. Voting is
like joining a club. If you are a member, you can have
a say in what the club does. If you are not, you
can't. In this case, the club is the American
electorate. Only members of the electorate, made up of
the voting public (NOT the general public), get to
have a say in how politicians act. If you don't
belong, you simply don't have a voice.
website is designed to help engineers join the
American electorate club. Run by leading engineering
associations, this site does not support specific
politicians. It does not ask you to vote for specific
people, and takes no stands on policy positions.
Rather, this site helps engineers participate in
elections without regard for how you chose to
participate. It provides engineers with information on
registering to vote and applying for absentee ballots.
This site also contains information on when to vote,
and on your state's other electoral deadlines.
This year, your local, state and federal
governments will vote on legislation that directly
affects you, your family and your profession. You can
influence those decisions, but only if you are part of
