How do I figure out when and where to vote?
To find your local polling place and when you can vote, contact your Secretary of State’s office: TriageCancer.org/StateResources.
Do I have to have an ID to vote?
Many states require you to show a form of ID when voting. Some states require a photo ID, such as a driver’s license, state-issued ID card, military ID card, or passport. But, some states offer free photo ID cards for people without another type of photo ID. Other states accept a non-photo ID such as a birth certificate, bank statement, utility bill, or Social Security card. For more information about the voter ID requirements in your state: www.ncsl.org/elections
In some states, it is still possible to vote even if you do not have the required form of ID or if your name is not on the list of registered voters at your polling location. Some states allow voters to sign a form affirming their identity or use a provisional ballot to vote. It is important to know what the rules are in your state before going to vote at your polling place. For more information: www.usa.gov/voter-id.
If I am standing in line when the polls close, do I have a right to still vote?
Yes. If you are in line when the polls close, you have the right to stay in line and vote. For more information: www.aclu.org/know-your-rights
