There are many ways to engage in the democratic process and support democracy in our society at large. Not everyone can do everything, but we hope you will take the time to vote, and if you can, support others in doing the same. Below are some ideas and resources to help you along, and even if you aren’t of voting age yet, there’s lots you can do too. We hope this is a helpful list. As you read through, jot down the ideas that sound like something you could do to support democracy:
Register to vote or double check your registration:
Learn about the candidates running for office and any ballot initiatives ahead of time:
Make your plan to vote and add it to your calendar today!
Know your rights and who to call if you or others are unable to vote
