Five Ways You Can Protect Your Vote This November!

 

1. Vote!

Whether you vote on November 7th or by early voting or absentee ballot, the only way to be sure your vote won't count is if you don't vote.

 

2. Find out if you're registered and where to vote.

For many states, you can find much of this information at www.CanIVote.org. You can also call your county election office.

 

3. Verify Your Vote

If you're voting on an electronic voting machine equipped with a paper trail printer, be sure to confirm that your vote is recorded accurately on the paper record. If there is a problem notify the poll worker before casting your vote.

 

4. Bring Identification

If your state requires a photo ID (Arizona, Indiana, and Florida) bring a photo ID. In every state, if you are voting for the first time and you registered by mail, you need to bring identification with you to the polls.

 

5. Election Protection Hotline

If you encounter any problem in the voting process call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) for English or 1-888-VEY-VOTA (1-888-839-8682 para la ayuda en espanol).

 

For Extra Credit Be A Pollworker!

Give a day for democracy! Many counties still need pollworkers. Elections are run by people and working at the polls on election day is a way they everyone can make a difference. Call your county election office and volunteer to work on election day. You can find out more at www.pollworkersfordemocracy.org.
