Tips for a Stress-Free Voting Day

Ballot

1) Vote early if you can. Many states allow early or absentee voting. Record numbers are expected to show up at the polls this year. This will help you avoid painful lines, traffic jams and parking nightmares.

2) Do not wear T-Shirts or other paraphernalia in support of your candidate. In most states, “political activity” is not allowed within 50 feet of a building used for voting.

3) Make sure you’re registered, before you vote. There are reports that thousands of names have been purged from voter polls. To make sure you’re eligible to vote, contact your state elections office or click here.

 

4) Plan ahead. Locate your polling place with this map finder in advance so getting there will be a snap.

 

5) Take family and friends with you. Car pool to avoid parking and traffic, and make sure all your love ones get to be a part of this important event in history.
