As we close out the month of September’s “Know Before You Go Vote” theme, I want to mention that the first Presidential debate will air tonight at 9 PM Eastern Time. Check your local listings to know which TV channel(s) will air tonight’s debate.
This week’s reminder is a repeat of last week’s reminder message over voter registration and educating yourself on who/what will appear on your ballot! That being said, visit http://www.vote.org now and register to vote, or to verify that your registration is still active/valid.
In closing, in-person early voting for the 2020 general election has begun in some states that include Virginia, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Now is the time to educate yourself on who and what will appear on your ballot. Consider the below resources:
BallotReady – Vote Informed on the Entire Ballot
The beauty about the BallotReady site is that you can research any candidate, referendum/ballot initiative, etc. that will appear on your ballot, based on your street address.
Vote411 Voter Guide – Personalized Ballot Information
The nice thing about the Vote411 site, is that they inform you about upcoming debate forums in your area, based on your street address. The debate forums are useful, especially when it comes to learning about lesser known candidates running for elected office.
