VOTE on November 8th or SOONER~Your Voice WILL Make a Difference! #JustShowUp
It’s time to get prepared to Make A Difference!
There are several things you can do to make sure you are prepared for election day. Let’s create a short checklist and share some helpful resources. I will be referring to California voter resources & deadlines in this article however, your state should have similar ones on their respective state websites.
- Election Day is November 8th! Polls are open 7 AM–8 PM. If you’re in line by 8 PM, you’re allowed to vote.
- I am assuming you are all Super Stars and Registered to Vote – Last Day was October 24 (15 days before election). Just in case, check here!
- Confirm your Voter Registration information: voter profile, polling place, county elections office for early voting
- PRINT & READ your state’s “voter information guide: this guide will detail your state’s propositions and what the Yes/No positions mean for each prop
- If you chose “vote-by-mail” when registering to vote, vote-by-mail ballots are mailed to voters up to 29 days before Election Day. Return your ballot ASAP! Ballots must be received at the Registrar of Voters Office polling place on Election Day to be counted & included in election night results. Watch this video on how to Mark your Vote!
- Complete your sample ballot before hand so you are prepared before you reach your polling place
- Take your State Photo ID just in case: If your name does not appear on the list of voters at the polling place but you are positive you did register to vote, you will be provided a provisional ballot which requires a photo identification.
- Awesome UNBIASED websites with helpful resources and Voter’s FAQs:
