Does your vote count anymore?
If you are unemployed, you don’t have to worry about this problem, but for the employed, one of the oldest tricks in the book for suppression of voting is the employer who tells his/her worker that if they leave during November 6th workday to get to the polls, they will be fired.
The best way to prevent losing your vote if you need to be worried about this problem is to apply for an absentee ballot long before voting day. If you have trouble registering to vote, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us why you haven’t been able to register.
Even so, we do have to worry that our ballots are being counted correctly. Please revisit this blog as we get closer to election time and type “Write in Stand in” into the search function, and we will tell you the best way to make sure your vote is counted.
