Remember, you can vote before Election Day

WITH SO MUCH riding on the upcoming elections, working families can’t afford to skip a vote. And being too busy or out of town on Election Day is no excuse.

Most states allow you to vote early simply by going to the elections office and filling out a ballot. If you anticipate being out of town on November 4, you can choose to vote by absentee ballot. Some states require that you indicate the reason why you can’t make it to the polls on Election Day; others allow you to vote by absentee ballot simply because you choose to do so.

Check with your local election office to find out how your state handles early voting requirements. For more information, go to the Boilermakers Political Action website, or contact the Boilermakers’ Government Affairs Office at 703-560-1493.
