Are you registered to vote?
If yes, are you sure you can vote? There is a possibility that you may not be able to–lots of states have changed laws recently, and voter purges or “inactive” voter registration cards may make it too late for you to vote on election day if it isn’t taken care of ahead of time.
The infograph above (courtesy of dailykos.com) lists what is necessary in each state in order to cast a ballot. This website is also a great help in finding out if you are currently eligible. Remember, registration doesn’t mean that you’re able to vote in every state anymore. If you’re in one of the grey/light blue states, you probably have no cause to worry. If you’re in a brown state, though, you may want to do some investigating.
Not only should you look up your state, but in some cases you may have to look county-by-county to find out your current voting status. Below is a mostly complete list of links to utilize to determine your voting status, also courtesy of dailykos.com. Some are state websites, some are references to country clerks offices which you need to check with:
- Delaware (New Castle), (Kent), (Sussex)
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
Make sure you can vote this November — especially because Republicans don’t want you to.
