Must-Know Voting Rights Resources for GOTV

Below are links to resources I see as especially helpful for people doing GOTV. Most of them are from a reprint of an email that I received from the League of Women Voters of Washington this morning. I've added several links on restoration of voting rights for people with prior felonies from ACLU - and information on registration deadlines (in-person voter registration is possible through October 29 in Washington) from Washington's Secretary of State.



"Must Know" Voting Rights links

Canivote.org
This site, maintained by the National Association of Secretaries of State, allows people in any state to verify that they are registered to vote. Given widespread Republican efforts to disenfranchise voters, parents of college students like me - or anyone with friends and family out of state, will find this useful. In Washington State you can verify your voting status here

Criminal Convictions Can I vote questionnaire of ACLU of Washington.
Those of us doing GOTV work in the days before the election - or who have prior felonies or know people who do - should understand that the right to vote was restored to an estimated 167,000 Washingtonians with prior felonies in 2009.  We should be able to direct people to resources where they can verify this for themselves.

In Washington State, anyone with a prior criminal conviction - state or federal - can vote, as long as he or she is no longer under state supervision.  As ACLU of Washington explained in its explanation of the new law: "Under the reform measure, individuals can register to vote once they're no longer under state-supervised parole or probation. Individuals will still have to repay their debts, but - like anyone else who owes money - they will not be denied the right and duty to vote."

Washington Secretary of State voter registration deadline page
Many people don't know that, although the deadline for mail voter registration has passed, in-person registration is open through October 29.

Now for the excellent list from League of Women Voters of Washington.


Reprint of League of Women Voters of Washington email
"Here are a few of our favorite nonpartisan voter resources:

VotingForJudges.org
This website has been taking the mystery out of judicial elections since 2006. Covers all judicial races in Washington.

Your County Elections Office
Find local voting information, ballot drop box locations and more. First time Washington voters may register in person until October 29. You may also request voting assistance such as audio and large-print ballots. In-person help, translation services and sip-and-puff machines may also be available.

Your Local League  is also an excellent resource."

That is a great resource. I did not know about the "Can I Vote" ACLU page.

It is really no surprise that this building was found to have bed bugs infesting it. I mean, it is in New York city, which is pretty disgusting itself.
