HAVE YOU REGISTERED TO VOTE?
Your voice matters. America may have declared its independence in 1776, but it wasn't for another 94 years until black men were granted voting rights and 148 until the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified for women. Native Americans weren't even considered full citizens until 1924 and not granted the right to vote everywhere until 1962. People fought and died for that right and today, sadly, are still fighting. Don't take your voice and your right for granted.
Even if you live in a state that feels like it has a predetermined outcome, know this: every race counts up and down the ballot. In fact, your local and in-state races for the House and Senate as well as for sheriff, for judges, and for your local representatives and city council members may have a greater effect on the issues you care about than the race for President. Please do your research. (We have provided you with some links below.) And please use your voice.
To register or find out if you are registered to vote, please visit www.Vote.org.
If you live in California and are already registered to vote, you will be automatically sent a mail-in ballot.
However, given the current political climate and the stress put on the United States postal service due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to make sure your ballot is counted, consider dropping it off at a ballot drop-off site before the election or at your polling place on November 3rd. Or mask-up and vote in person on November 3rd.
If you are young and healthy, consider volunteering your time to be a poll worker.
