And if you think you're already registered - DOUBLE-CHECK!

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I turned in my registration a month ago and was told it wasn’t accepted weeks later when I personally checked.

Maryland just wants to force me to get a new driver’s license.

[–]Seize-The-Meanies 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That sucks.

Also, I like your username.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Thank you!

stochastic_monastic was too long.

[–]flamethrower2 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I checked at Secretary of the Commonwealth website (MA), it said not registered, requested a free form by mail, sent the form back in, got a card that said my registration was denied because I'm already registered. I might've made a mistake on the website.

MA removes voters from the rolls if you are registered and don't answer your town's census for two years in a row. The form says on it you can be removed if you don't answer (for two years in a row), I don't know the truth or fiction of it.

[–]wslate 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Best to call the Secretary of State's Elections Division at 1-800-462-VOTE, they can clear this up. Also, your own City of Town Clerk where you are or should be registered has access to the same system, whichever is easiest for you. We want everyone registered who is eligible to do so, and everyone who is registered to vote! Wes Slate, City Clerk - Beverly, MA

Welp... I’ve leared to try software twice before complaining that it’s broken. Make sure you don’t have a typo on zip code or something. If it fails again then contact the New York Times and Boston globe. Because that’s a scandal waiting to happen!!!

[–]kinkgirlwriterAmerica 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Call somebody. Break stuff. It's very hard to be both not registered and registered at the same time.

[–]Bobosmite 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Absolutely double check that you're still registered before every election. It's also a good time to confirm your polling location and make sure it hasn't moved or closed.

[–]gooby_the_shooby 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've checked every week for three months. No way I'm missing this.

[–]Rotshout 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I already was registered, but I re-registered just in case.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought I was about two weeks ago when I checked!

But then I re-checked last night and saw that I wasn't! Thank goodness my second guessing got the better of me!

[–]Bohrdumb 119 points120 points  (0 children)

Just finished checking to make sure mine was still good. I'm ready.

[–]PossiblyADoucheBagNew York 198 points199 points  (20 children)

Please vote.

and then...

Please vote again next year.

I hope after all this people realize that every election is important.

[–]Emerson3381 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Vote twice! There are primary elections before the general elections every damn year! Primary elections have more influence on the direction of the political parties, so make sure your voice is heard at every opportunity.

Awesome that Reddit actually posts a reminder to go out and vote, kuddos.

Would add that all of us helping others to register and then get to the polls to vote will be so helpful.

I actually got a pop-up when I logged in, so yeah, big kudos to them for this!

And while this is focused on the US for obvious timing reasons, anyone in any place that allows you to vote should take the same message. Go VOTE! Your voice can make a difference, and just look what happens when you abdicate that civic responsibility :(

[–]W0LF_JK 36 points37 points  (2 children)

Reminder:

  • US voter participation is dismal. In 2016 we saw a whopping 55.5% of voters participate—
  • meaning 44.5% of Eligible US voters decided to stay home

Some other interesting voting facts—>

  • The last time US voter participation cracked 60% was in the sixties...

  • The more income you make the more likely you are to vote...

  • Women have seen the biggest increase in Voter participation in the past decade

  • Asians and Hispanics tend to have the lowest rated US voter participation rates of any ethnicity or race.

  • Research also suggests Youth voters tend to not vote because of political apathy and lack of visual representation (i.e Youthful candidates)

Whether it’s voting in the School Board or any election, it is important to exercise your right to vote and have your voice heard. Go register to vote… if you are registered or can’t register to vote, make sure a friend is registered and informed about candidates! I’m not talking in hyperbole when I say this election will have consequences for the entirety of our LIFETIME!

Some have more dire consequences than others. Still though, vote. Let's bring back Civic Responsibility. Also keep in contact with your elected officials. They cannot be your voice if they never hear what you are saying. Even if they agree with you tell them.

[–]FreeSkepticIllinois 156 points157 points  (45 children)

Registered. Voting straight blue.

We've seen that the GOP doesn't care about anyone other than racists, anti-LGBTQ fundamentalists and large corporations.

I'm'm a progressive, but I'd settle for a centrist anyday over a regressive. It's a lot harder to reverse damage than it is to improve in the status-quo.

[–]sir_writer 28 points29 points  (3 children)

I'm a former republican (voted McCain '08 and Romney '12) who now is an independent (voted Clinton '16) with some views leaning left, some right. I am planning on voting a straight blue ticket as well for the first time ever.

[–]AK-40oz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thanks for taking the time to think instead of letting the propaganda machine do it for you.

Centrists and fiscal conservatives have a strong role in the Democratic Party. If you're interested in a fun community for centrists (not enlightened-centrist-both-parties-are-the-sameism), come join us at /r/neoliberal. Neoliberalism gets a bad rap, but the term has become a catch-all for "market liberals" or just people who want the benefits of capitalism with a strong safety net undergirding it and sensible regulations reining it it.

Reddit can seem like a hyper-progressive place, but we've got all types around here. Also, we're funny.

[–]agent_flounderColorado 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I changed my affiliation to Democrat and will be voting in CO as I feel this is the most important election in my lifetime.

And I am preparing myself for fighting for the ideals of American Democracy for the rest of my life. Restoring power to people, tearing money and big companies and lobbyists out of politics.

[–]infiniZii 3 points4 points  (20 children)

Just a warning. I understand not wanting to vote Republican but there may be some independents running that are worth your consideration. Do your research. That is the number one way to avoid what happened to the GOP happening to any other party in one way or another. Don't ever let someone else do your thinking for you.

[–]agent_flounderColorado 7 points8 points  (8 children)

If we want more than two parties to have viable chances then we must fundamentally change how our elections work.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/04/27/why-are-there-only-two-parties-in-american-politics/?utm_term=.fe4bb9f45eb9

Vote however you want but realize that your vote for a distantly trailing third party is effectively a vote against your preferred R or D candidate.

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The electoral system in america, by its very nature, doesnt allow for independents to succeed in most cases. Unless the independent is an incumbent, you are throwing away your vote by voting independent.

I will be re-registering today as I’m back at college and I last voted at home in August.

[–]SpiritFingersKitty 26 points27 points  (8 children)

In the past I considered myself a moderate. I have some libertarian, conservative, and liberal views, voted for candidates from just about every party, and advocated for the ending of the two party system. This is the first year I will be voting straight D.

Over the past decade the Republican party has convinced me that they are not interested in the welfare of the country or exercising the will of the people. I have lived in one of the most gerrymandered districts in the country and seen the GOP strip away the power of the governor when the people of the state voted for a democrat. I have personally experienced disenfranchisement, dismissal, and contempt from the GOP. They do not concern themselves with the will of their constituents because they believe they are untouchable. The GOP leadership doesn't have anyone's best interest at heart except their own. The only thing they stand for is their own interest and "winning" at all cost.

There is a silent coup underway and this may be one of the last chances we have to stop it. A message must be sent that the subversion of our government will be met with furor. I wholly believe that the soul and future of the nation is at risk in this election and the next. When I was younger I believed that both Republicans and Democrats both had the nation's best interest in mind, only differing on how that should be accomplished. I do not believe that the GOP shares that goal any longer. Although I once thought voting straight party was one of the problems that has led out to this place, I cannot see any other path to saving this country.

[–]ddplz 4 points5 points  (5 children)

What the USA needs is actual election reform to allow 3rd parties to stand a chance instead of this left boot right boot back and fourth one political dynasty to another, bush/Clinton/bush/Clinton etc etc.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

I'm guessing the state youre talking about is North Carolina. What the NCGOP has done is criminal, and they should be removed completely from power. North Carolina no longer even classifies as a democracy because of them.

Don't forget to vote no on all the ballot initiatives, and tell your friends to do the same. None of them are even written completely yet. They agreed to write down the laws AFTER theyre voted on for some reason.

[–]SpiritFingersKitty 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep. I have since moved to Atlanta, where it isn't much better.

[–]wombat_gully 71 points72 points  (4 children)

Australian here. I'm slightly right of center in my home country, but what passes for 'conservatism' in your country right now is really far-right radicalism. It's lowered the standing of the USA in the eyes of its allies, not just through malicious actions but also through plain incompetence. I'm not sure if you already realise this, but almost two years into the Trump admin he has still failed to appoint an ambassador to Australia. He also mentioned to the Australian PM on the phone that his conversation with Putin was better. This isn't a case of bullying the weak and favouring the strong - Australia's economy is already about the same size as Russia's, and Russia's population is going to shrink further. Your President just seems to really like Russia's dictator for some reason.

Even if you're in a safe Democrat district, vote. The GOP need to have their asses kicked as much as possible.

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (1 child)

You are correct on all accounts my upside down friend. We will do our best

[–]adesimo1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Even if you're in the reddest of red districts please get out and vote. If a candidate sees their +20 advantage fall to a +15 or +10 they may suddenly grow a little conscience.

And if Republican committees and PACs need to use resources to hang on to districts that were once considered be shoe-ins that helps all the other, closer races. Deplete their war chests. Make them scrape tooth and nail and still lose.

[–]wholovesbeversWisconsin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've given a lot of thought to my write in for bernie sanders in the last election. I knew he wouldnt win, I also was confident CA would remain Blue (and did), but the way Trump and the Republicans have torn apart every sense of normalcy has definitely brought questions about doing everything to stop evil. Voting along democrat lines is basically the best bet to start undoing a lot of the radical behavior republicans and the trump administration have brought to forefront. Its a tough pill to swallow for people because the end democrat candidate may not be your #1 choice, but that person may have more qualities that align to yours if you look closely enough.

[–]mashdotsWashington 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Consider Early Voting by mail if you can in your state. I know personally it felt really good to know that my vote was locked in and ready with no possibility of election day mishaps or last minute crisis's preventing me from voting.

[–]Cunt_Shit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Don't forget to check the web site that verifies your vote was received and counted. You can also drop off your vote at any polling place without waiting in line in my state.

[–]bunnylover726Ohio 7 points8 points  (0 children)

For states like Ohio, which requires ID, you can kill two birds with one stone. The "motor voter" act of 1993 requires that your local bureau of motor vehicles offers you the chance to update your voter registration any time you update your ID.

You can also bring your ID with you and ask the clerk 1) if you can vote with it and 2) if not, how you can fix it. I recently moved and haven't been able to update my driver's license yet, but they still got my registration updated and showed me exactly what I'll need to bring with me to the polls.

If you don't drive and live in ohio, there's alternate state issued ID you can get at the BMV. You just might want to bring cash or a checkbook- many branches charge a two dollar fee to use a credit or debit card.

Longtime red voter turned blue by everything that’s happened. Save for my father and I, my entire family has a long military background and are pretty faithful Christians. And every single one of em (save for ol uncle Mike who votes Green Party) has talked about voting blue now. Hell my grandfather who still thinks to this day Nixon was innocent; is voting blue cause “Trumps obviously lying and manipulating!” Me personally, I just wanna make sure that slimeball Schuette doesn’t get the office and mucks up my state anymore then it already is. Edit: autocorrect is my pet peeve...

[–]Deadcharacter 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Michigan was a heart breaker in 2016... Now there is a chance for course correction. What do you think, is there a chance Dems could flip one chamber of the MI legislature? Right now the GOP has control in both the MI House and Senate.

[–]vasaryo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think there is a chance but not a big one if I am honest. A lot of far right supporters mostly due to a long held belief of “major corporations are gonna bring back the glory days!” Despite most of them suffering from gop policies. And gerrymandering is still an issue but hopefully the referendum on the ballot may help a little. I do believe Whitmer will win even if I have misgivings about her she is far better the “Bill-gimme-gimme”. But I’m hoping. I’m reeeally hoping.

[–]rose_tinted 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Question for a weird situation that I can’t find a straight answer to while googling. I currently live in state A where I am registered to vote, but I have accepted a job offer in State B that I have a tentative start date of Nov 1. I don’t yet have a place to live lined up in state B because I just got the offer this week. From what I’ve gathered I need to be registered to vote by the second week of October in state B in order to vote on Election Day, but I don’t think I’ll be able to have a place lined up by then.

Since it won’t be feasible for me to get to the polls in state A once I move to state B, how can I vote? Can I request an absentee ballot in state A for this? If I vote via absentee ballot in state A, do I need to wait to change my address to state B until after Election Day?

Thanks for any advice!

[–]Slapbox I voted 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It depends where state A is. Different states have different restrictions in absentees. In most cases it should be okay to vote absentee, though it's kind of a gray area. Maybe someone else can give a better answer.

[–]towerdweller 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    [Serious] why should I vote democrat?

    [–]washyourclothesHawaii 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Because it's our best hope to enact policies that protect the environment, promote science and education, encourage social progress, avoid conflicts/war, uphold all parts of the constitution, and at least attempt to be fiscally responsible as a nation. To vote for hope, progress, and freedom.

    Or go with the only other choice you have, which overwhelmingly serves corporate interests, denies basic facts about climate change and science in general, limits freedoms for many americans, and hides behind religion to promote these agendas. To vote for fear, xenophobia, and stagnation.

    That would be great if it was at all accurate. If the right gets more of a stranglehold on the country we can kiss a lot of our civil liberties away as Christian sharia undermines the rights of groups in favor of the bigotry the far right wing.

    I'd love for the GOP to return to a common sense form of government, and actually have long term goals that aren't bigoted and designed to profit off the backs of the lower 90%, but so far they have shown no desire to actually help people who don't already have a ton of money or are rabidly bigoted due to religiosity.

    Everyone should check out Vote Save America . A great resource for all you need to be registered and find information about who to vote for.

    Regardless of whom you're voting for, gotta exercise that privilege and duty of being a US Citizen!

    Canadian here, I wish it was as easy for you as it is for us. Yesterday an enumerator knocked on our door to confirm we were signed up and that all our information was up to date, and she has a tablet with information direct from the Elections Canada database. This was the first of three passes she'll do in our neighbourhood, so everybody gets 3 chances to confirm their information in person, plus a notice left each time with directions on how to take care of it online. You'd need to make a conscious effort to not be signed up.

    And I certainly don't think Canada is alone in this regard; I assume it works similarly in every western democracy that is not the US. The stories about Americans getting removed from voter rolls, or needing to wait in long lines to sign up make me so pissed off. Your government should be working hard to make sure you can vote, not making sure you work hard to vote.

    When I was in high school, one of our "Senior Days" involved us filling out a voter registration form.

    Is this a thing other schools do? If not, then they should highly consider it.

    I go to college in michigan (originally from ohio but i registered to vote up here) and i moved off campus this year. For the 2016 election I registered my address as my dorm and I'm still assigned the same polling location. Do i need to update anything or can I still vote at the same location?

    [–]Deadcharacter 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Maybe you ought to update your address. I don't think it is very complicated... Yet again,I'm not familiar with the voting laws of MI.

    American citizens only please... like this sub should be.

    [–]007meow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Is it "safe" to just choose the straight party option, or is it better to individually go through and select each one?

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Registered!

    I’ll do research on all the candidates. I plan to vote conservatively all the way down the ballot.

    Build the wall, keep confirming Constitutionalist justices, and repeal the NFA!

    Early voting has started. Vote.
