Help Get Out the Vote!
Canvass for your local candidates. Call their campaign headquarters and volunteer to walk door to door with them, send texts, and join phone banks. Volunteer in their campaign headquarters to answer phones, stuff envelopes and distribute lawn signs and campaign posters.
Join your local town Democratic Committee. They will direct you on how to volunteer for both local candidates and in national elections. Also, let them know if you might be interested in running for office, whether on the local, state, or federal level. They will provide advice and guidance on what this entails.
Make sure you and your family members and friends are all registered to vote, especially the younger members of your family or the children of your friends. If you have a NYS driver’s license, you can register to vote on-line at the NY DMV website. If you don’t have a driver’s license, go to voterizer.org where you will be walked through a simple procedure for registering. And if you are not sure whether you are registered, or whether your registration is still valid, go to vote.org to check your voting status. Finally, let your family and friends in NY know that they can request absentee ballots online at https://absenteeballot.elections.ny.gov/ if they think they might not be available to vote in person.
Consider voting absentee if they think they might not be available to vote in person.
