You have a congressman and maybe a senator to elect. Most locations also have school boards, city and county offices, and other local and state offices. In my state, there is an amendment to the state constitution under consideration (granted, this one has zero controversy, but that's not always the case.)

Several years ago, my city council made a serious of disastrous decisions that are negatively affecting the city to this day. The next election we threw ALL of them out of office. Among other things, the new council improved our police and fire department, finished some much needed infrastructure, allowed some businesses to build and done much to improve the city. Last major election, our city soundly rejected to tax increases for some joint county-wide projects. There was much ridicule at the time, but we've been proven right over the long run.

Growing up, my tiny town consistently rejected school budgets, forcing them to become quite lean and to concentrate on what matters. For years that school was one of the best in the state.

Voting really did matter in both places.
