Speak out: Register and Vote.

Steph White, "I voted"

NCTE's Managing Director, Steph White, went and voted today. How about you?

Exercising your rights at the ballot box is one way to make your voice heard! But in almost all states, you must be registered to vote. September is National Voter Registration Month. If you aren’t registered, or if you need to update your name, address or other information, now is the time to do it so you can vote in the November elections. Here are a couple of places to get started:

  • Vote411.org, a project of the League of Women Voters; you can register to vote, find polling places and get information about elections in your state, www.Vote411.org; they have links to registration forms in English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, and Vietnamese;
  • canIVote.org, a website run by state election officials, which has information about registration, what ID you need, how to become a poll worker, etc., www.canivote.org;
  • National Council of La Raza’s ya es hora ¡VE Y VOTA!: http://veyvota.yaeshora.info

We have also released an updated version of our resource on Overcoming Voting Obstacles for Transgender People,  which provides information about what to do to

overcome common barriers to voting that transgender people face, such as changing your name on voting records. It also includes information about addressing issues like racism, how to get voter registration forms in various languages, and rights for those who are students, homeless, disabled or have a felony conviction.

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a
    very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me
    to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to
    create your theme? Superb work!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Superb blog!
