Elections are the most direct way for the public to directly influence their local government. During the election process, candidates generally outline their platforms and objectives if they were to be elected. By choosing the candidates with the ideals and qualities that are most acceptable to the electors, citizens can directly influence the type of community where they reside or own property.
