It's time for Midterms 2018 TOMORROW, and First off I'd like to encourage everyone to do their duty and vote! It's an important civic responsibility to lend your voice, and it's especially important this year to remind our leaders that we have the power. Here's some helpful links going into the midterms so you can be as prepared for them as possible (even if it's last minute).
WHERE TO VOTE: Not only do you have to be registered (which it's too late if you aren't) but you have to know which polling station will have your name on file so the process will be nice and painless. Here's a great link to a website which takes your basic information and lets you know the location of your polling station. It gives you the option of voting in person or by mail and details the proper steps and locations to do so successfully.
ALSO it's not too late to turn in an absentee ballot as long as it is HAND DELIVERED TODAY to the Onondaga County Board of Elections at 1000 Erie Blvd W, Syracuse, NY 13204. Do NOT mail it in or it won't be counted. Get your absentee ballot form on the web page below.
If you feel as though you were wrongfully denied your right to vote, if you're feeling disenfranchised or unfairly turned away from a polling place, here's a website which recommends a few steps you can take to increase your chances of your ballot being counted:
And most importantly, if you were denied the right to vote don't forget to REPORT IT. Voter disenfranchisement is often rampant in this country and it's very very important to hold those accountable for taking illegal actions against American's attempting to vote.
Get out and vote guys! Often times your polling place is located VERY nearby so it shouldn't be too much of a hassle, that and it feels so good to do your part. UBER is also making it easier to get out to the polls by offering free or discounted rides to polling places across the US, so no excuses this year! Let's make our founding fathers proud and contribute!
