Please Vote

Via George and Liz, What if you show up to vote next Tuesday and election workers say you are not registered?

  1. Make sure you are at the correct voting precinct. You can check at My Polling Place or call 1-866-OUR-VOTE for assistance.
  2. If you are at the correct polling place and officials claim you are not registered, request a provisional ballot. It’s your right under the law.

I thought about voting early today, but some real life stuff intervened, but you can bet I’ll be going to the polls on Tuesday. I’ll be letting my students leave class early so they can vote (many of them have already voted!), and I’ll be driving out to my polling center after my last class. I’m anticipating (and sort of hoping for) long lines Tuesday afternoon, but it’s cool to see so much excitement about this year’s election! Then Tuesday night, I’ll be attending an election-watching party, keeping my fingers crossed for some good news. Looking forward to hearing other people’s election stories.

Update: Thanks to Jen, here is a link to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office with an easy-to-use poll locator so you know where to vote.

    The Secretary of State’s site has a kick ass poll locator that you can use to find your correct polling place. Just enter a bit of information and BAM, you vote at the Baptist Church.

    Actually, I vote at the Presbyterian Church!! Thanks for the link, Jen. I think this is how I found out where to vote when I first moved to Georgia. I’ll definitely post the link in the main entry (oh, and I’ve turend HTML back on in comments–I’m not going to let comment spam change the way I blog!).
