Friday Feature #5: Resources on Voting in the Upcoming Election
Though COVID-19 has affected almost every aspect of our daily lives, it does not affect our responsibility as US citizens to vote in the upcoming November election. For this special Friday Feature edition, we’d like to share a list of resources with you and those whom you support to ensure that everyone can cast a ballot safely.
This website features helpful information on the various ways DC residents can vote in this election. It discusses how and when to send a mail-in-ballot, early voting information, and how to vote in-person on election day. It also has a thorough section on accessibility, explaining the resources available to voters with disabilities.
This page includes voter assistance information for in-person, online, and in-home voting.
Here you can learn how to register to vote in DC if you are not already registered.
If you are not sure, you can also check your voter registration status here as well. Due to health emergency, ALL DC RESIDENTS will receive an absentee ballot to their registered address (you do not have to request one as you would have in the past) but if you have recently moved or need to change your registration in any way, you can do so on this website.
Information for Maryland voters.
Information for Virginia voters.
This resource helps you go into the polling station fully prepared and informed.
You can find your closest polling station, fill out a sample ballot, research what measures you’ll be voting on, and explore the views of all federal, state, and local candidates on the ballot.
Take ownership in your nation and your community, vote, and pass along this information to those who might need it.
