Get Out and Vote this Tuesday!
This Tuesday, November 3rd is the US election and we’re encouraging everyone to get out and vote if you haven’t done so already. Millions have already done their duty and made their voice heard at the ballot box. Today is the official day and the last day to do so. If you haven’t already cast a ballot, you still have time today.
This is the most important election of our lifetime. That is often thrown around but from someone who has worked dozens of elections with dozens of candidates, this isn’t an exaggeration. We have a chance to make our voice heard and say the direction we want to see this country go.
This is a choice between an attempt to get back to normalcy or a continued march towards fascism. The stances of the Presidential candidates are clear and the stakes have never been higher.
But, even if you don’t want to vote for President, there’s still so many other elections to cast your ballot in.
There are still lots of local races, ballot initiatives, bonds, and more to vote on, and some of these may set the direction of the country even more than the President! Redistricting is on this ballot for instance and that will be controlled by local elections. This election is much more than a Presidential race (though you might not know it) and every elected position impacts you.
You still have a lot of time to figure out everything you’ll be voting for. If you need to find your polling place or what’s on your local ballot Vote 411 can help. Vote.org is another site that can help you as well.
If you go to vote and encounter an issue call the voting rights hotline at 866 OUR-VOTE.
Most importantly, get out and vote this Tuesday!
