A website that makes voting easier
Of course you--engaged, responsible citizen that you are--would never forget to vote. But sometimes, figuring out exactly how do to so can be a lot of work, particularly if you have just moved or need to vote by absentee ballot.
Luckily, a new website--launched just in time for that all-important November election--has you covered.
Think of the (totally nonpartisan) TurboVote as the foolproof way to streamline your voting habits. Upon signing up, you’re prompted to get help with a number of election-related things: registering, updating your registration, getting an absentee ballot, voting by mail or receiving election reminders. TurboVote then walks you through a series of steps to determine if (and where) you’re currently registered and what forms you’ll need in order to cast your vote.
We, for instance, wanted to update our polling place after a recent move and found TurboVote’s process awfully intuitive. The site gathered our information, then generated a stamped registration form (which ran us $1.60) for signing and mailing.
It’s so easy you have no excuse not to make Susan B. Anthony proud.
Note: The State Instructions portion of the National Registration Form is useful for locating your “Voter ID.”
