Election Day Voter Checklist
Voter Checklist for Election Day
1. Register to vote if you've not done so already. Find out your state's voter registration deadline beforehand.
2. Check with your local Elections office to verify you are still registered
to vote one week before your state registration deadline. If you're
not on the list, please re-register.
3. Bring your photo ID and sample ballot (which you received
by mail) - with you to your poll location. ID requirements vary by state.
4. Ask to vote on a paper ballot, if your polling place has paper ballots.
5. Report any problems to these hotline numbers and ask for help if
Call Toll Free 1-(866) OUR-VOTE / 1-(866) 687-8683 for English and español.
Call Toll Free 1-(888) VEY-VOTA / 1-(888) 839-8682 para la ayuda en español.
6. If you plan to vote absentee, and you have the time, check with your
local elections office first, to find out if you can drop off your ballot at
your regular polling location on Elections Day. Ask the poll worker for a receipt.
ProtectMyVote.org recommends that you drop off your Absentee ballot on Election Day rather than mailing it in. Make sure the signature on the front of the envelope matches the absentee ballot inside. If you drop off your absentee ballot at your polling place or the local elections office, remember to take a photo ID with you just in case. Make sure your absentee ballot has the correct 2008 date on it. If it doesn't, call your local party office or a hotline immediately.
