5 Things You Need To Know On Election Day
Election day is right around the corner and we have a surprise for you! Check out the info below and don't forget to download the handout format for your voting needs!
1. Go To The Right Place Poll locations can change. Be sure to locate your polling place before you go to vote. Check www.VOTE411.org or contact the elections office or board of elections for your county, city or state.
2. Bring I.D. You may need to show I.D. at the polling place. To be safe, bring your driver’s license or another photo I.D. In some places, a current utility bill, paycheck or other document that includes your name and street address may also work.
3. Get a Ballot Don’t panic if you registered to vote but your name is not on the list. Get help from a poll worker to make sure your vote is counted. You should be given a provisional ballot or given directions to another polling place.
4. Get Help Poll workers are there to help you. They’ll show you how to use the voting machine or give you a provisional ballot if you need one. Ask, or read the signs at your polling place, which have instructions, list your voting rights and say how to file a complaint.
5. Stay and Vote You probably won’t have to wait too long. But even if the line is long, don’t leave without voting. The outcome of this election will be important!
