Are You Prepared for Election Day?

By Elisabeth McNamara, President of the League of Women Voters

In less than 24 hours, polling places in many communities across the country will open their doors and welcome voters to cast their ballots for thousands of ballot initiatives and state and local elections. Do you and your loved ones have the information you need to vote tomorrow?

Enter your address at to build your personalized voting guide that will include up-to-date information you need to cast your ballot.

Millions of voters are heading to the polls this year to stand up for what matters most in our communities and our lives. We hope you’re planning to join with your neighbors to participate if there are elections in your area and hope you’ll encourage your loved ones to do the same. These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities and our future. We all need to weigh in.

Ask your friends and family: What’s your plan for Election Day? Will you vote before or after work? Will you go to the polls with a neighbor or friend? Will you take your children to share the experience? Now’s the time to make your plan.

Voting brings us together as Americans. It is the one time when we are all equal. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old; Election Day is your opportunity to support your community and have a say in our future. At a time when so much is at stake for our country and our future, voting allows us to take control. Every vote counts and together, our votes will make a difference.

Join with your neighbors in strengthening your community by voting in this election, and thank you for Making Democracy Work®.

I see Cuccinelli has purged 40,000 Democrats from the voter registration rolls to improve his chances.

Nevada Assembly Minority leader, Pat Hickey, revealed the purpose for the mutlt-state, ALEC-sponsored, republican purge: “Probably where we had a million voters turn out in 2012; we’ll have like 700,000 [in 2014]. A lot of minorities, a lot of younger people will not turn out in a non-presidential year. It’s a great year for Republicans!”

Glad to see this. Yes, voting is a community activity and we should encourage each other to vote. The League of Women Voters is a national treasure.

Thank you for getting this resource out there--so many TX women have to sign affidavits to vote and other ghastlies that a trusted resource should help keep voters from losing their rights

It makes NO difference in how a person votes...the candidates are candudates because they were bought one way or another...they only USE certain issues to their advantage...say abortion..its a dead issue but people will vote who believe they can change or uphold it.....smoking mirrors

Am 78, have voted in every election since 1956. Can't understand why people are so lazy! I want to add to this comment that we moved and lost internet service for a month. When I tried to get back on Care2 they claimed my email was invalid, also password. I emailed help twice and just got the "bed bug" letter in return. Consequently I registered under my alternate email address, new log in, new password. I had a lot of friends before, starting all over. Someone really dropped the ball. Shame on you Care2 help.
