This guide will help you understand the process of voting, what you need to bring with you to the polls, and who is eligible to vote. It is important to cast your vote in this election, so make sure you read this guide and are prepared to participate!
The first thing you need to do is
Find out if you are registered to vote. If you are not sure, you can check with your local county elections office or look up your state’s voter registration website. Once you have confirmed that you are registered, take a look at the sample ballot for your precinct so that you can familiarize yourself with the candidates and issues.
If you are not registered to vote,
You can still do so in most states up until Election Day. You will need to bring proof of identification and residency with you to the polls. Check with your local elections office for specific requirements in your state.
When you go to vote on Election Day,
You will need to bring a photo ID with you. If you do not have a driver’s license or other government-issued ID, you may be able to use a passport, utility bill, or bank statement instead. Once you have been cleared to vote, you will receive a ballot. You will then go into a voting booth and fill out your ballot by marking your choices with a pencil. Once you are finished, you will insert your ballot into a voting machine and your vote will be counted!
It is important to remember that every vote counts. Make sure you exercise your right to vote in the upcoming election!
