Making sure you're registered

Check the registration rolls

  • Call your local and state Board of Elections, or look on their website if they have an active one that lists registrations.
  • Call a candidate's office.
  • Check a major candidate's website. For example, you can go to www.barackobama.com and clicking on the “find out where to vote” link in the righthand column (scroll down the page)

Vote

  • Vote early if you can, that way you’ll have time to deal with any problems that might arise.
  • Get to the polls early in the day on November 4th.

If there are problems

  • If you have trouble voting, call 866.OUR.VOTE from the polling place if possible. The Election Protection Coalition has attorneys standing by who can help if needed.
  • Report broken machines, long lines, or other polling place problems to the Twitter Vote Report, or call 866.OUR VOTE.
  • Stand your ground: insist on your rights at the polls! In many states, you have the right to cast a provisional ballot no matter what.

Help others

The more people participating in and watching the process, the less likely there’ll be disenfranchisement at the polls!
