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:
- 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.
