Make a plan for voting

  • Will you go before school? After work?
  • Are you taking the bus, walking, or driving? If you’re driving, where will you park?
  • If you’re voting by mail or voting absentee, when/where will you drop off or mail your ballot?
  • Do you need any documentation to vote?
  • Ask your friends/family if they have a plan. If you have the same polling place, maybe you can go to vote together.
