This is the 100 year anniversary of women (white women) gaining the right to vote in the United States of America. Don't throw the privilege away!
So you want to get involved in democracy. Here are some of the things you need to know.
First, how to register to vote:
This is how you know if the groups that matter to you agree or disagree with a candidate. These can include, but are not limited to unions, nonprofits, and state representatives. If you tend to align with a particular political party, looking to see if district groups for that party have endorsed candidates.
Third, the ballot:
If you registered to vote long before the election, this shouldn't be a problem because you have provided you address and both your ballot and voter pamphlet should arrive in plenty of time. If not, or if something got muddled up along the way, you can go online and print out a ballot yourself. This can be accessed through your county elections page online. It can be a little confusing, but don't give up hope; keep clicking. And don't forget stamps!
Happy voting, y'all!
