Know Your Rights: Everything you need before casting your ballot

Essential worker holding sign that says "Our votes are essential."

Across the country, millions of essential workers have already voted. To end police violence; to fight for justice for survivors of sexual harassment on the job; for $15/hr and union rights. For racial and economic justice.

A lot of people with a lot of money don’t want people like us to vote. Black people. Brown people. Poor folks. Working folks in general. People like us who have to fight for a decent living every day. They work to keep us down, because they know that when we stand up together, we are powerful. But they’re not going to stop us.

So, as you get ready to go vote, KNOW YOUR RIGHTS:

  • If you’re in line when polls close, stay in line. You have the right to vote.
  • If you make a mistake on your ballot, request a new one.
  • If voting machines are down, request a paper ballot.
  • If you have any issues voting, call the voter protection hotline: 1-866-OUR-VOTE

Find your polling place and make a plan to get there on Election Day — tomorrow, Tuesday 11/3.
