Librarians support your right to vote –

Written by Michael Sutherland, Web Services Librarian

At its 2012 Annual Conference, the American Library Association’s Council unanimously passed a resolution opposing voter suppression.  On the heels of that resolution, ALA supported Vote 411, a tool produced by the League of Women Voters, that is a “one-stop-shop” for election related information.  Vote 411 provides nonpartisan information to the public with both general and state-specific information on the following aspects of the election process:

  • Absentee ballot information
  • Ballot measure information (where applicable)
  • Early voting options (where applicable)
  • Election dates
  • Factual data on candidates in various federal, state and local races
  • General information on such topics as how to watch debates with a critical eye
  • ID requirements
  • Polling place locations
  • Registration deadlines
  • Voter qualifications
  • Voter registration forms
  • Voting machines

Use the tool to become an informed citizen and exercise your right to vote!
