Vote! It's An Easy Way to Support Your Favorite Causes


Tomorrow, Americans across the country will head to the polls to cast their votes for local and state representatives. Will you be one of them?

Voting is a great way to stand up for the causes that matter most to you! Here are a few resources to help you get to the polls and feel confident about your vote...


The representatives we elect tomorrow will directly affect the policies and legislation that impact us and the causes that matter most to us for years to come. Make sure your voice is heard! Stand up for yourself, your neighbors, and your favorite causes by voting for the candidates that align with your interests.

Voting is an easy (and free!) way to support your favorite charities. Check out these resources to help you get to the polls and vote confidently:

Where do I vote?

If you’re registered to vote but not sure where to go, call your local Board of Elections. They will be able to give you the location and hours for your local polling place based on your address.

I need help getting there…

Rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft will be offering free or deeply discounted rides to the polls on tomorrow. Log in to your favorite app to learn more. Local organizations may provide similar services too.

I don’t feel prepared…

What?! You’ve been avoiding political news and conversations for weeks? That’s fine--we get it! But, that’s not an excuse not to head to the polls. There are a number of free online resources like I Side With, that can help you understand who’s running in your area, and what their platforms and positions are. 

Please don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard and stand up for what matters most to you!
