Information Is the Best Defense

Posted: Updated:

As we prepare for Election Day, tomorrow, the League is worried that voter confusion could still be an issue despite extensive education efforts in the wake of our success against states' attempts to keep eligible voters out of the process.

Our press release today highlights this concern. We have been working on the ground, especially in states most likely to experience voter confusion, during the past few months to educate as many voters as possible about their state requirements.

Now it's time for one final push. Our premier election website,, is standing ready to help alleviate last-minute voter confusion. Go to to find your polling place, general and state-specific information, and voting requirements. You can also prepare a personal voter guide by entering your address.

If you are in a jurisdiction affected by Hurricane Sandy, you will find the latest additional voting information available from the affected states.

I cannot repeat this enough. This election may be the most important of our lifetime, and the results could be close. Jobs and economic stability, the health of our families, the sustainability of our environment, and the quality education are all on the line. We urge everyone to be an active participant in our democracy - make sure you VOTE.

Make the commitment here. After you vote, SHARE your experience with your friends, family, and colleagues, and with us on Facebook and Twitter.

The League has a 92-year tradition of promoting voting rights and empowering voters with valuable information. We have fought for fair, free and accessible elections for all eligible voters.
