Your Election Day Survival Resources

By Rachel Walden — November 3, 2008

Most of us are expecting long lines at the polling place on election day. Here are a few websites providing information that may be useful to you as you prepare to vote.

How to take kids to the voting booth on Election Day – tips from an AP writer

Election Day Resources for Voters with Disabilities – Information from the National Disability Rights Network

Election Protection – Voter rights protection

Project Vote Smart – All kinds of info on voting. Also has directory of contact information for local election offices around the country.

Citizen Media Law Project – Information on documenting your vote.

Urban Voter’s Survival Guide – A checklist of steps to take prior to election day.

Voting Rights During Foreclosure – Good starting place on this topic at Ballotpedia, although you may want to verify locally.

As for me, my Election Day survival kit is going to include a cell phone, numbers for reporting problems, a snack, and maybe some water and reading material. And I’m bringing a buddy!

If you need more convincing of what’s at stake in this election, head over to RH Reality Check and read The Future of Sexual and Reproductive Health.

PS-You may have heard that a number of companies are offering free treats or beverages to voters on Election Day. I just learned this morning that this includes Babeland stores in New York and Seattle, who are giving out free sex toys to voters!
