Election Day: Don’t Forget to Vote!

Election Day November 6, 2018 is upon us. The Nassau County Board of Elections has list of candidates with party affiliations for your consideration.

You can check on your registration information and get information about your election district and voting location by entering your name and some other identifying information.

The Vote411 site allows you to find your voting place and create a personal ballot to compare candidates for races in your district. Simply type in your address and the races that you can vote in come up. You can compare the candidates (some have submitted personal statements and biographies) so that you are ready to vote when you get to the polling place on Tuesday.

If you want a good look at a candidate’s biography, voting record, speeches, ratings and funding, consult Project Vote Smart. Simply type in a candidate’s name and then choose the topic you want to see. There is also a tab called Vote Easy; by entering your zip code and then answering some questions and giving their importance to you the site will give you the candidate who most closely match your preferences.

After you cast your vote on Tuesday you can follow the results on Politico. From that homepage you can click on the individual states to see how candidates are faring.

In the 2016 Presidential election only about 6 in 10 eligible voters cast their ballots. In the previous midterms (2010 and 2014) only about 4 in 10 voted.  Remember to vote!
