Despite Sandy make sure you KNOW where to GO to VOTE on Tues.
As we clean up from Hurricane Sandy’s historic mess, it’s easy to forget that there’s a presidential election on Tuesday. Resilient New Yorkers will go to the polls by the millions to exercise their right to vote.
The state Board of Elections has extended the absentee ballot deadline to allow people displaced by the storm to vote. Also, more than 100 polling places are located in storm-affected areas, and voters may need some help navigating these changes.
That’s why the NYCLU has launched Let Me Vote — an online voting rights guide that provides all the information you need to cast your ballot on Election Day.
Anyone denied the right to vote should call our national voter protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE or 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA to contact an attorney who can help them find a solution. We will also send teams of volunteers to targeted polling places across the state to assist voters who encounter obstacles.
There’s much more at stake next Tuesday than who occupies the White House. New Yorkers also will decide who represents them in Congress and the State Legislature. It’s critical that you exercise your right to vote. We will help do just that with confidence and without fear of intimidation.
Share this with everyone you know everywhere, in particular in all the battleground states.
Print this out and carry it with you when you go to vote.
Finally, get there early and help your family, friends and neighbors vote.
