Election Day is here.
TWU has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and we want to make sure our members know their rights before they go in the voting booth this year.
Here’s what you need to know:
Many states offer same-day voter registration. If you didn’t have a chance to register before Election Day, in many states there’s still time. Unsure if your state offers same-day registration? Check here to find out.
Some states have new voter ID laws. According to the ACLU, 17 states have new voter ID laws in effect this November. These types of laws include strict identification requirements and more. Check voter ID laws in your state here.
You might be entitled to time off work for voting. Many states guarantee time off to vote on Election Day. You can check if your state is one of them here.
If you need help voting, you’re entitled to it. If you or someone you know needs assistance reading or writing English, or needs assistance for another reason, ask the volunteers at your polling place for help. Learn about voter accessibility laws here.
If you’re in line before the polls close, you should be able to vote. Even if you don’t vote by the time the polls close, everyone who was in line on time is able to vote. If you need help for any reason, call 866-OUR-VOTE.
TWU endorsed Hillary Clinton for president because we’ve done the research: She’s the only candidate in this race who has a plan to fight for working families. Remember: your vote is your voice, so let’s make sure the voices of working people are heard tomorrow.
