November 7 is Election Day! We’ve pulled together some important resources and articles for readers — and feel free to add any more you know of in the comments!
1. Need help finding your polling place? (Don’t forget, your designated location may have changed.) Find where to vote at Vote.org.
2. Enter your street address at Vote411 to get information about local races and candidates.
3. The ACLU has a guide to knowing your voting rights, resisting voter intimidation, and obtaining disability-related accommodations and language assistance at the polls.
4. USA.gov has info on voter ID requirements among the states.
5. For voting help before or on Election Day, including to report problems at a polling place, call the non-partisan Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (list of hotlines in other languages).
6. Hopefully you won’t need this, but Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection has created fact sheets for all 50 states explaining the laws barring unauthorized private militia groups — and what to do if groups of armed individuals are near a polling place.)
