Rock the Vote!

Just a little PSA (public service announcement)- please go vote. No matter who your candidate of choice is I implore you to go and perform your civic duty. And go early if you can. Even advance voting here has had long lines. And just in case you experience any difficulties at the polls here are a few resources for you:


1. Call the local elections office to verify the location of your polling
place. Locations may have changed, and a vote cast at the wrong place might
not get counted.
2. Bring identification to the polls, preferably a government-issued photo ID
with your name and registered street address.
3. Ask for help from poll workers and check posted information signs if you
have questions or need assistance.
4. Make sure you cast a vote. If you are in line when the polls close, stay in line
because you are entitled to vote.
5. If you are offered a provisional ballot, ask if you can cast a regular ballot
by providing additional ID or by going to another polling place. If no alternative
is available or practical, cast a provisional ballot.
6. If you have a voting rights problem, ask to speak with the chief election
official or a voting rights volunteer at the polls, or call the toll-free
nationwide Election Protection Hotline, 1-866-OUR-VOTE, a project of
a coalition of groups, including the AFL-CIO, promoting voting rights.
