Learn About the Candidates and Issues on Your Ballot

It seems like there is no shortage of people and organizations looking to give you their opinion on how to vote. Add that to the influx of campaign calls, mailers, TV ads, and yard signs, and elections can be overwhelming and the information can be confusing. There are also often too many issues and candidates to keep track of. But it is possible to find information to help you make an informed decision.

Registered voters typically receive an official ballot information booklet in your mailbox. Created by election officials, these booklets are filled with impartial analysis and arguments in favor and against each ballot measure and candidate. You can also often find similar information in local newspapers and news station websites, although these sources may also provide voting recommendations.

Finally, you can also find information on websites such as Ballotpedia and Vote.org where you can use your address to look up the list of issues and candidates that will be on your ballot.

Make Your Voice Heard

Even though Election Day may seem a long way off, your state’s registration deadline may be just around the corner. Whether you’re planning to register online, by mail, or in person, it’s important that you understand these deadlines if you hope to participate in one of our most cherished traditions.

If you have additional questions or concerns about your voting rights, don’t hesitate to ask a lawyer.
