Election Day is just around the corner! On Tuesday, November 4, voters across the country will head to the polls to cast their votes in thousands of local, state and federal elections.
What's your Election Day game plan? Now is the time to learn about your local voting rules, think about how and when you'll cast your vote, and commit to voting in the elections in your community.
Are you ready? Ask yourself:
Can I still register to vote?
Voter registration deadlines are taking place in many states. A number of states allow in-person voter registration at local government offices, or the option to register to vote on Election Day and/or when you vote early. Don't wait -- find the voter registration information for your state to see if you can still register!
Where will I be on Election Day?
If you'll be away from your polling place due to travel, work, school or other reasons, you'll need to take advantage of early voting - if offered in your state - or cast an absentee ballot. Early voting has begun in many states. Visit VOTE411.org to learn about your state's early voting options or to request an absentee ballot if you won't be able to vote in-person on Election Day.
