Step 2B: Prepare your ballot
By casting your vote in this election, you will be voting for those who will be appointed for the Federal Offices, State Offices, County Offices, Municipal (City) Offices, Presidential Appointments & Governor Appointments.
Do your research and decide who you are going to be voting for and how you will vote on different ballot measures. Voting in person is like an open book exam. You can prepare your answers in advance and take them with you to the ballot box. We have several nonpartisan resources that will show you what will be on your ballot.
Every vote in every race counts. There are many races that have been won or lost by less 100 or 10 votes!
Voting in person? Make sure to reconfirm the ID that you need to take, double check the location and timing, grab your mask, pack lunch/snacks, and wear comfy shoes. Once you get your sticker, be sure to wear it with pride!
Voting by mail? Take your ballot to a secure ballot dropbox (if available), USPS blue box, or postal facility by or before your deadline. Don’t forget to let others know that you voted! There are lots of fun stickers on social media to share.
BONUS: Did you fill out the census?
The 2020 Census impacts you! It determines how many people represent each state in Congress, and how BILLIONS of dollars are distributed across the country to fund schools, senior services, road, healthcare, job programs, housing, transportation, and other vital services.
EVERYONE (citizens and non-citizens) must be counted.
