Know Your Voting Rights!
Friday, November 02, 2012
Make sure you're armed with all the info you need to make your vote counted on Election Day, with these online resources:
Vote411.org was created by the League of Women Voters Education Fund, and is a nonpartisan, "one-stop shop" that provides personalized election information based on address. Info like your polling location and hours, absentee ballot info, factual info on candidates in local, state, and federal races, ID requirements, and more. Info is also searchable by state or topic. Vote411.org also provides hotlines to call if you experience any Election Day problems.
The ACLU is providing similar state-by-state "Let Me Vote" info here.
18MR partner the Asian American Legal Defense & Education Fund (AALDEF) also has voting rights fact sheets for voters and nonprofits in a range of states -- some translated into Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean.
Check these sites out and make sure you know your voting rights and are prepared for November 6th!
