Election day is here! This is definitely a nerve-wracking moment. We want to send out voting resources one more time and also to take the opportunity to send a note of appreciation to all of our members who've been working your tails off this election cycle so that we have record engagement and turnout and so that the voices of our communities can be heard. Thank you to all the candidates who've used their campaign platforms to elevate the issues and have pledged to serve the people and protect the planet. There is so much at stake this election -- it's really scary. No matter what - we will stand together shoulder to shoulder and fight for environmental, economic and social justice.
Know Your Rights on Election Day!
If the polls close while you’re still in line, stay in line – you have the right to vote.
If you make a mistake on your ballot, ask for a new one.
If the machines are down at your polling place, ask for a paper ballot.
If you are a voter with a disability, under federal law, all polling places for federal elections must be fully accessible to older adults and voters with disabilities.
Simply allowing curbside voting is not enough to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements.
It’s illegal to intimidate voters and a federal crime to “intimidate, with the right of [that] other person to vote or to vote as he may choose.”
What to do if you experience threaten, [or] coerce … any other person for the purpose of interfering voter intimidation:
Report intimidation to the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE or 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (en Español).
Report intimidation to your local election officials. Their offices will be open on Election Day.
