Election Day and voting resources
Public service announcement:
GET OUT AND VOTE THIS ELECTION DAY!
Here are some really awesome last-minute resources:
- iSideWith is a great tool that allows you to input your thoughts on the issues, and it lets you know which candidate’s views align with your own.
- Make sure you’re registered to vote! Some states allow same-day registration. Figure out what your state’s requirements are at canivote.org.
- Know your state’s law when it comes to taking time off work to vote.
- You can find your polling place by going to Google and typing “find my polling place.” Or get it here, if you’re feeling a little saucy.
- Visit BallotReady to read up on everything that will be on your ballot — because you can vote for more than just the president.
- And finally, shameless plug, you can follow along with election coverage both local and national with the Chicago Tribune.
Cheers to democracy, and happy voting! It been an incredibly rough and divisive election, but I will never, ever take my right to vote for granted, and I hope you don’t either! So many people fought for our voting rights, so put them to good use.
