BE A MULTI-ISSUE VOTER Everyone Thrives. No exceptions! Everyone Thrives. No exceptions cdn_helper cdn_helper cdn_helper cdn_helper

Multi-issue voters consider candidates' positions on all social justice matters. Single-issue voters vote on one issue, disregarding the full body of equally sacred issues that preserve and protect the freedoms we all need to thrive in a multi-faith, multiracial democracy.

Make a plan.

CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION

Even if you are certain you are registered to vote, look up your voter registration. Sometimes, people are unexpectedly removed from voting rolls without being informed by their state or locality. Checking your registration ensures you can do your part as a multi-issue voter.

WILL YOU VOTE EARLY?

When you vote early, you choose your own Election Day! On your day, you avoid long lines, conflicts with work and family schedules, inclement weather, and more. Depending on your local voting laws, early voting may mean voting in-person at a location, placing your ballot in a drop box, or mailing in your ballot.

SCHEDULE ELECTION DAY

Tuesday, November 5 is Election Day. Schedule it like you would any other important appointment. Choose a time and add it to your home, work, and mobile calendars. The place you voted last time, may be different in 2024, so check your voting poll’s location and operating hours.

SHARE YOUR PLAN

We can all play a part in helping our country get better at voting. Let friends and family know your voting plan and encourage them to make one of their own, too. This worksheet helps you track your efforts (and theirs!) Make arrangements to vote as a group with playgroups, neighbors, or church friends. Make it a special occasion for kids and take them for dinner and dessert afterwards.
