USRESIST NEWS VOTER CHECKLIST: NOVEMBER 3, 2020 ELECTION
USRESIST NEWS has published this checklist as a guide to help ensure that all
Voters cast their 2020 election ballots in a safe and timely manner. It is the most important thing we can do right now to preserve our democracy.
Know your state’s voting requirements (If you don’t know visit https://www.usvotefoundation.org/vote/state-elections/state-election-dates-deadlines.htm#CA )
Make sure you are registered to vote as soon as possible.
Know the 2 ballot deadlines:
- The date it must be postmarked by.
- The date it must be received by. ( Because even if the ballot is postmarked in time if it is not received by the second deadline (a relevant issue because of the US Mail’s issues currently) it won’t be counted.)
–Mail-In and Absentee Ballot Voters:
Submit your ballot as early as possible so that your vote gets counted in a timely way.
Know the location of your polling station and its hours of operation.
Make sure you have transportation to take you to and from the polls
Protect yourself when you go to the polling station; wear a mask and social distance
Be prepared, if need be, to stand-in-line and wait.
Make sure your ballot is received by a poll worker
