Make sure you’re registered
New and restrictive voting laws in states across the country are threatening to keep as many as 5 million voters from casting a ballot this November. Many of these laws remove early access to voting, make it more difficult for citizens to register, or require restrictive photo ID cards that many seniors, minorities and students do not have. Click on the Rock the Vote logo below to register to vote today.
Check out the new Voter Protection smartphone app!
The 2012 election cycle is in full swing and we want to make sure you have all the information you need in order to cast a ballot. The new Election Protection smartphone app gives you all you need to know about voting in the palm of your hand! The app is available in both English and Spanish for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry users.
After downloading the app, users will be able to:
- Verify their registration and register to vote;
- Look up their polling place;
- Review key voting rules and regulations for their state;
- See what type of machine they vote on; and
- Contact Election Protection via phone or email to report a problem or get answers to their questions.
You need to be equipped and informed when heading to the polls this year and this app can help. Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights, NALEO Education Fund, New Organizing Institute Education Fund, Rock the Vote and Verified Voting have collaborated to provide this smartphone app free of charge.
