It’s hard to believe, but Election Day in the US is just a little more than four months away.

In the blink of an eye, November 5 – the big day! – will be here, and that’s why it’s so important that you take the time today to make sure you’re registered to vote, register right now if you’re not, request an absentee ballot if you need one, and check out what’s on the ballot in your neck of the woods.

Because you don’t want to sit this one out.

Voting this year is your chance to make a difference and help shape the country you want. The future you want. To protect our democracy and stop the powerful forces trying to silence our voices.

Check out our voter resources below to make sure your voice is heard this Election Day.

Check Your Registration Status

The best place to start your journey as a voter is by checking your voter registration status. If you’re not yet registered (more on that below), start by making sure you’re eligible as each state has its own guidelines to follow.

Even if you are certain you are registered to vote, you should still double check to verify your registration is up to date ahead of upcoming elections to confirm that you’re all set – just in case.

You can check your registration status here.

Register to Vote

If you are eligible to vote but not yet registered, that’s an easy problem to fix!

Each state also has its own deadline to register, so make sure to fill out the voter registration form as soon as possible.

Request an Absentee Ballot

If you’ll be out of town or unable to vote on November 5, you may be eligible to request an absentee or mail-in ballot.

“Although most states have absentee voting, deadlines and rules on who can take part vary. Some states require an excuse to vote absentee. Others do not,” according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. “In most states, you will need to request an absentee ballot to vote in each election.”

Similarly, the options around mail-in voting can vary by state.

If you are unable to make it to your polling place on Election Day (November 5) or you simply prefer to vote by mail, you can use our form to request to have a ballot mailed to you.

Voting by mail is safe, simple, and secure!

Check What’s on Your Ballot

Once you’ve figured out your voting plan, it’s time to vote!

For the general election on November 5, you’ll be able to vote for presidential candidates and members of Congress. And depending on where you live, there could also be additional elections at the state level as well as ballot measures.

Lawmakers at every level have a big impact on our daily lives – so make sure to do your research and use trusted information sources. You can often check out sample ballots on many secretary of state websites, so you can see exactly who and what you’ll be voting on when you go into the voting booth or receive your ballot in the mail.

You can also check what federal, state, and local races you can expect to see on your ballot this year here.

Get Ready to Vote

Before you head to the polls, confirm your polling location and double check what documents or identification you might need to bring to vote. Like so much else, this varies by state, so please confirm on your state’s board of elections website.

Voting on Election Day could take some time and during certain parts of the day the line could get pretty long, so be prepared for a potential wait. And as a reminder, don’t wear clothing or bring items that support or oppose any candidates or political parties, since those items might not be allowed in your polling station.

Make sure to be aware of your rights as a voter. If the polls close while you’re still in line, stay in line – you have the right to vote.

If you have any questions or make a mistake while voting, don’t be afraid to ask the poll workers for assistance. That’s what they’re there for.

It’s time to raise your voice and make your vote count!

Your voice is your vote. Be a voter.
