Vote!

Rebecca Hume

Today’s E-day, people. The rallies and robo-calls are over. Debating and donating are at an end. It all comes down to you and a few checkboxes.

As you might expect from a bunch of outspoken, socially-conscious do-gooders, the ducks are pretty big into voting. (Plus the free stickers don’t hurt.) But for any remaining undecideds out there, here are a few resources to help you make that booth-time decision:

Google Voter Info

A quick and easy way to find out who’s running in your district. Just enter your address to see your complete ballot, including local offices as well as national and state-level races. Also includes polling place locations and links to candidate websites and social media for more information.

Project Vote Smart’s “Vote Easy”

This interactive tool matches you with presidential and congressional candidates based on your responses to a number of policy questions. Allows for in-depth exploration of candidate positions and prioritizing based on the issues that are most important to you.

And for anyone considering not voting, here’s some inspiration from AIGA’s Get Out the Vote poster project, designed to rekindle that democratic spirit and hopefully get you out to your polling place:
