"Cynicism" has been visible on social media and elsewhere. It is an attitude that may masquerade as wisdom, but instead is closed, negative and says, "No". Cynicism may cause young and new voters to feel their votes won't count or are not necessary. Cynicism takes away the POWER of the active, informed citizens to participate in "free and fair elections", a critical function of our democracy.

Election Day should run smoothly, with election officials trained to help voters. If you have concerns about voting, know that State and Local Election officials are working hard to ensure everyone can vote safely at the polls.

What should you do if there is a problem with your voter status or identification? A voter always has the right to ask for a Provisional Ballot when challenged and should never leave their Polling Place without voting.

Another thing you can do if you are challenged at your Polling Place or if you observe voter intimidation is to call Election Protection Coalition. Staff and legal professionals are available to answer your questions and to respond to reports of election issues.

See this Poster for the HOTLINE phone numbers (English/Spanish) to report problems or ask for help.

Every eligible citizen has the Right to Vote!
