COUNTDOWN TO ELECTION DAY 2016!
VOTER ACTION PLANYour step-by-step guide to being a prepared voter this election season
If you have recently turned eighteen, changed your address, are an ex-offender or a new U.S. citizen, or if you have never registered in the past, you will need to register to vote.
Laws concerning felons’ eligibility to vote vary from state to state. Find out more here.
If your state has closed primaries, make sure you are registered under the party whose candidate you intend to vote for.
Mark election dates on your calendar and plan ahead to ensure you have time off to vote.
If your state requires you to show photo or non-photo ID to vote, make sure you have appropriate documentation on hand before election day.
Traveling is not an excuse to let your voice go unheard!
Knowing the voting laws in your area is your best defense against voter discrimination and intimidation, which occur even today, particularly in Southern states.
