Here’s What You’ll Find at Those Websites
When people draw the connection between public services they rely on and decisions made by elected officials, they begin to develop a strong sense of urgency to vote and have a say in those decisions.
The next step in the voting process is to seek more information about registering and voting.
People can register to vote in person at their state or local election office or at the Department of Motor Vehicles. These nonpartisan resources can help people register online and find key information.
This site is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the US — a nonpartisan group founded in 1920. In addition to providing basic information about registering and voting, the website has a checklist for first-time voters, and it lets people create a personalized voting page with information relevant to them, among other things.
Vote.org is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that “uses technology to simplify political engagement, increase voter turnout, and strengthen American democracy.” The website has a simple interface that helps people check their registration status, register, or get an absentee ballot. It offers text alerts to remind people when to vote.
USA.gov is the U.S. government’s official web portal. The voting and elections section includes useful information about who can vote, how to register, where to vote, and how elections work in the United States. You’ll find helpful guides, such as a glossary of voting terms and even links to resources to help choose a candidate.
Run by the National Association of Secretaries of State, or NASS, this nonpartisan website directs people quickly to information in their home states — where they can learn about registering, their registration status, polling locations, and other key information.
This website is run by the Nancy A. Humphreys Institute for Political Social Work at the University of Connecticut. The institute “works to increase the political participation and power of social workers and the communities they serve.” The website has information about the important connection between social work and voter engagement, including links to voting resources and research in this area.
This interactive website, hosted by NBC news, helps voters determine when and how they can vote in the 2020 election by detailing each state’s COVID-19 restrictions, mail-in ballot information, early voting accommodations, and other key information.
Nonprofit VOTE works with American nonprofits “to help the people they serve participate and vote.” This web page includes guides, toolkits, reports, checklists, webinars, fact sheets, and other resources to help nonprofit organizations integrate voter engagement activities into their work.
This nonpartisan website describes itself as place undecided voters can go to get “non-biased, straight-up facts you can use” to help make a decision about whom to vote for. It provides information about domestic policy — things like health care, the economy, and immigration — and foreign policy. It also provides information about how and where to vote.
