Election Watch 2016: Election Day Edition

If you weren’t fortunate enough to vote early, today is the day to take action in America.

Things To Remember When You Vote Today

  • If you need any help voting, get all the relevant information via http://www.canivote.org.

  • The following states allow same-day registration for regular voting, so that even if you haven’t yet registered, you can still vote: Colorado, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

  • Your vote is crucial, and you should feel confident in exercising it as you see fit. If you believe you’re witnessing or experiencing voter intimidation, you should call the the national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition at 866-687-8683.

  • If you’re already in line when the polls close, you get to vote. That’s the law, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

  • As Linda Sarsour sagely noted, if voting didn’t matter, no one would be trying to stop you from doing it. One party, the Republicans, sought to disenfranchise voters. One candidate, Donald Trump, hopes for victory by suppressing voter turnout. Remember that in the voting booth. Remember it in the future, as well.

  • We will get through this.
