You don’t want your youth to miss this!

Last Minute Tips for Tuesday

Copy of 3 DAYS GOTV - BLOG

Tuesday is Election Day!  Here are some last minute tips to help you get ready!

Last Minute Tips

  • If you’ve recently moved within VA and did not update your registration in time, you can still vote in this election! You just have to return to the locality in which you are registered.


  • If you or someone you know is unable to stand in line on Election Day you may take advantage of curbside voting. Have someone who drove you or rode with you to the polls go inside and let the election official know that you need curbside voting. They will send someone out and you can vote from the vehicle.


  • If for some unfortunate reason the official working at your polling place informs you that you cannot vote at this time (i.e. lack of ID) you can ask to cast a provisional ballot. You can also call the Voter Protection Hotline at 844-4VA-VOTE if there are any issues.


  • What are YOU doing to help get out the vote? It is crucial for everyone’s voice to be heard and we need your help! Send this info to 10 of your friends that live in Virginia!
