Be prepared to assist and encourage voters on Tuesday, November 4th.
Voters are more likely to participate if they believe turnout will be high, and your reminders can convince people to head to the polls.
- Send a communication to your audience promoting the voting tools below.
- Make the election visible. Advertise polling hours prominently on your website and in your lobby. Print and distribute “Vote November 4” stickers (compatible with Avery Labels #5294).
- Equip staff with information and tools to help voters successfully cast a ballot.
What’s On My Ballot:
For the first time, Google answers this question–in detail. Ask Google “What’s on my ballot?” Enter an address, zip code, or state to view a list of candidates and statewide measures that will appear on the ballot.
Or get a personalized ballot from the League of Women Voters’ Vote411 tool.
Find Your Polling Place:
The Pew Voting Information Project, Google, and the Internet Association have collaborated to help voters find their polling place with www.gettothepolls.com.
Check Your Registration:
Wondering if and where you’re registered to vote? Avoid potential problems at the polls and double check your registration before Election Day.

States have different requirements for voter ID. Make sure you bring the identification required to cast a ballot.
