Protect Your Right to Vote!


Here are four things to remember when you go to the polls next Tuesday:



ONE: confirm your registration!  Call 1 866-OUR-VOTE. Operators will help you make sure the registration form you filled out has been processed and that you been placed on the voting rolls.

TWO: make sure you have the correct ID!  Each state has its own specific ID requirements, so don’t assume anything.  Having improper ID is the most common reason students are denied the right to vote.  Ask the operators what forms of ID are acceptable in your state, and then remember to bring them with you on Election Day.

THREE: do not leave the polling place without casting a ballot!  If your name is not on the voter list, or you went to the wrong polling place, or you do not have the correct ID, YOU STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE. Ask for a provisional ballot. Then call the county election office later that day to confirm that your ballot has been processed.

FOUR: If you think a poll worker is illegally challenging your right to vote or if someone is intimidating you, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE and speak with an election lawyer. Ask for someone to come to your polling place to help you.
