Tues – 8/14: Midterms are almost upon us.

Nonvoters helped to hand Trump the presidency. (wapo), (fortune) Let’s help them take back their power.

We are within 90 days of the midterm elections! Check your status!

That’s an important benchmark, because under current law, states can’t purge you from their roles within 90 days of an election. In CA, click here to:

  1. Check if you are registered to vote.
  2. Check where you are registered to vote.
  3. Check your political party preference.
  4. Check your language preference for election materials.
  5. Check the status of your vote-by-mail or provisional ballot.
  6. Find your polling place.
  • If anything has changed since the last time you voted – your address, your political party, whatever, re-register to vote here.
  • You can register for the first time if you’re 18 or going to be 18 on election day. You can PRE-REGISTER if you’re 16 or 17.
  • Yes, you can register and vote in the 14 days before an election or on Election Day itself in CA, but you would have to appear in person at your local elections office.

If you’re not in CA, go to  www.vote.org to find your state’s election center – each state’s election information is listed.  After you’ve checked your registration status, do yourself a favor and take a screen shot of it. If things go wonky at your precinct that day, it will be nice to have that information handy.

Take the 24 hour pledge!
