Sample Election Advisory


This is a sample advisory you can customize and use to remind voters about the election and make sure they know when, where and how to vote.

[Note: This was modified from a CAIR-California advisory.]

Headline: Election Day is [day of the week, date] (e.g. Tuesday, November 6)

As a U.S. citizen, it's your right to vote. Most states have laws guaranteeing you the right to take time off work to vote.

Here's what you do:

  • Find your polling station:
    • Find out where to vote through the Democratic National Committee here.
    • Find out where to vote through the Republican National Committee here.
  • Bring identification such as a driver's license or passport. Most states require it.
  • If you would like a paper ballot, request it. You don't have to use the electronic ballot if you don't want to.
  • When you're done voting, grab an "I Voted" sticker and wear it to show you fulfilled your civil duty and to remind others to vote.
  • Congratulations on voting!
  • Call your family and friends and make sure they voted. Help them to find their polling place.

Remember, if you don't vote, don't complain about government policies.
