I received an e-mail from People For The American Way reminding me to vote early and thought I would share with you.
Every vote matters … so don’t take any chances with yours!
VOTE EARLY! Find about early voting options where you live at GoVote.org — a tool offered by our friends at CREDO Mobile and the New Organizing Institute.
If your state does not have early voting, GoVote.org is still an excellent place to find out other voting information like your local elections office contact info, polling hours, polling locations and what voters are required to have when they show up to the polls.
If you do live in a state that allows early in-person voting, or in-person or no-excuse absentee voting, there are so many reasons to take advantage of the opportunity. Here are just a few:
- Long lines and the “last minute” factor on Election Day — give yourself some time… go vote when it’s more convenient for you.
- Winter’s rolling in — the weather is getting colder and in some states, snow or cold, heavy rain on Election Day could be a possibility, so just in case, make things easy on yourself.
- If someone gives you a problem about your registration or eligibility, you have time to correct it — voting early will allow you extra time to come back with more identification, have your records confirmed with the state board of election, etc… a far better alternative than the possibility of having to accept a provisional ballot on Election Day.
- FREE YOURSELF UP TO VOLUNTEER ON ELECTION DAY!!! — because the causes and candidates you’re supporting need your help in the home stretch.
Convinced yet? Find out if you can vote early and how at GoVote.org right now.
Every vote counted. Every voice heard. That’s the American Way.
