I shy away from political issues on this blog and I'm not going to bring up anything that we haven't already learned in school so here it goes.
I've seen a bunch of helpful links going around and I thought I'd share it for those who were not planning to vote but are now inspired!
- Where to vote
- What time polling places close state by state
- The most important races aside from the Presidential election
- 23 ballot measures to keep an eye on
- Real time results, analysis and commentary
I know a lot of polling places have handouts or verbally tell you but just a reminder you have to vote for the President separately. So when you do a straight ticket it does not mean you voted for the President of that political party.
Some states require photo ID so if someone is driving you remember to bring your license or some form of recognizable ID.
It is too late for absentee ballots or to change your address so when looking for where you vote you must have the location you are registered under.
Also don't forget to look up facts about each candidate (don't rely on what the candidate says about their opponent alone) my best advice is to avoid .com (which is intended for commerical) and visit .org or .edu but still double check their sources as well :)
Make the change you want to see and ladies practice your right that so many women before you have fought for!!
