We all know that this year's election is one to pay attention to, and that it's important to have plan in place for election day. With that being said, it’s easy to become distracted with everything going on in the world right now. That’s why we’ve put together a list of helpful tools to make this election a little easier! Whether you’re planning to vote in person on election day, or early by mail, here is a practical list of tools to help you prepare!
1. Check Your Voter Registration Status
Before election day, you can check your official voter registration status at NASS.org, and take a look to see if you need to update any of your important information, such as your address or phone number. This is especially good to check early if you vote by mail!
2. Find Your Polling Place
If you are planning on voting in person it is important to have a polling place in mind that you know you can rely on and easily access. Vote.org has a simple tool that helps you find polling places near you. Just pick your state, enter your address, and choose which location best fits!
3. Set Yourself Election Reminders
Vote.org comes in again and saves the day with their Election Reminders Sign-up tool. Make it easy on yourself and get text and/or email reminders of election dates coming up!
4. Get Informed
CalMatters November 2020 Election Guide is an incredibly useful resource as it gives detailed explanations (via videos and a written guide) of each of the Props on the ballot for Californians this year and breaks them down to help you make an informed decision.
Another helpful aid is this 2020 Voting Guide: Issues That Matter to Seniors from Retireguide.com. It is a non-partisan guide which discusses "the future of prescription drug prices, Medicare, Social Security and more", all very important issues coming up this election.
5. Track Your Ballot
For California voters, Ballottrax is a website that sends you text message updates on the status of your ballot. You’ll have peace of mind knowing when it’s mailed, received, and counted!
