Wow, we can’t believe it’s almost here – Election Day is tomorrow! Everything we’ve been working on for months is on the line. It’s time to cast your vote and make your voice heard. With the polls this close, every vote really does count – especially young women’s votes. It’s time for us to hold politicians accountable for their anti-women’s rights politics.
- Make sure you have all the necessary identification required in your state when you go to your polling place
- Make sure you know where your polling place is
- Don’t forget there may be important issues on the ballot in your state. Volunteer for a local campaign and work at your polling station to help educate voters on these ballot initiatives before they vote!
- It’s not too late to Get Out Her Vote and help spread this information to other students on your campus. Organize a group of your friends and go to the polls together!
But its not just about voting. We also have to make sure that people’s votes are counted, and unfortunately, electoral fraud can decide an election outcome. It’s happened in previous elections, and we can’t let it happen this year. Take a stand! Call our East Coast office at 703-522-2214 if you see anything questionable on Tuesday, such as:
- a ballot that is printed incorrectly or seems misleading
- faulty machines
- lines that are outrageously long
- any delaying or harassing of voters
- asking for identification that is not required by your state’s law
- anything else that seems improper or suspicious
You can fight electoral fraud by speaking out when you see something questionable.
You deserve a fair election!
