Jasper John’s “Flag” (1954-55)
Today is one of the most important elections in US history, please make sure you get out there and vote. Remember to vote not just for Barack Obama, but for Congressional, State and Local canididates as well.
If you are in California, make sure to get out there and vote NO on Proposition 8 (a ban on same-sex marriage). Regardless of how you feel about marriage it’s wrong to eliminate fundamental rights and take away rights that people already have!
In case your confused about where to vote, here is some helpful information:
Where and when do I vote?
Find your polling place, voting times, and other important information by checking out these sites and the hotline below. These resources are good, but not perfect. To be doubly sure, you can also contact your local elections office:
Obama’s VoteForChange site: voteforchange.com
League of Women Voters’ site: vote411.org/pollfinder.php
Obama’s voter hotline: 877-US4-OBAMA (877-874-6226)
What should I do before I go?
After you’ve entered your address on either Vote For Change or Vote411, read the voting instructions and special rules for your state. Voting ID laws vary from state to state, but if you have ID, bring it.
Check out all the voting myths and misinformation to look out for here.
What if something goes wrong?
Not on the voter list? Make sure you’re at the right polling place, then demand a provisional ballot (but only as a last resort!). If you’re voting on an electronic machine with a paper record, verify that the record is accurate–but if you can, ask for a paper ballot.
Need legal help?
Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE, and if you encounter a problem, try to videotape the situation and submit it to VideoTheVote.org.
Want to do more?
Text all of your friends: “Vote Obama today! Pass it on!”
Make calls from home for Obama–remember some people just need a little nudge. Remind friends and family what is at stake! Remind them of the last 8 years!
Good luck! And let’s hope all goes well!
