Dear [Name of Recipient],
Today is Election Day in VA! If you are eligible to vote and haven’t yet, we encourage you to go out and vote today. Here are some key things to remember:
Where to Go
Look up your polling location and ballot information at vote.elections.virginia.gov/VoterInformation
What to Bring
Check what type of identification you need to bring to the polls at voteriders.org. This year, you should also make sure to bring proper personal protective equipment such as a mask and hand sanitizer.
When to Vote
Know when you will go to the polls to cast your ballot. Maybe you’re already on your way with a cup of coffee or you’re planning to go this afternoon. Either way, check the hours the polls are open.
It is likely that you will show up to the polls and everything will go smoothly. However, you should be prepared in case you run into issues at the polls. Save the Election Protection hotline 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683), and call if you have any questions.
Thank a Poll Worker!
Poll workers are every day people who volunteer their services to make sure everyone who is eligible can vote. Thank them for supporting democracy and serving as a poll worker amidst a pandemic.
