TOMORROW IS ELECTION DAY.

Thank you to our partner @apiavote for these resources!

“Across the nation, we've seen a record turnout of voters who voted early or requested their ballots by mail. If you haven't cast your ballot yet, make sure you're ready.

Need a ride to the polls? We got you. Wherever you show up on Nov. 3, we’ve got your @lyft. Use code 2020VOTE to take 50% off (up to $10) one Election Day ride to a polling place or ballot dropbox. If two wheels are more your thing, this code applies to bike and scooter rides in select cities*

*Exclusions apply. See lft.to/2020VOTE for details.

Make sure you....

Check the rules: Does your region require you to have a valid ID to vote? Are you planning on doing same-day registration? Make sure you have all the correct documents and materials you need to vote.

Know your polling location or nearest ballot box: Do you know where your polling location is? It's a good idea to check ahead of time. Visit apiavote.org/location to look up your polling location or nearest ballot box.

Are vote plan ready: Make sure you know what's on your ballot and your voting options. Visit vote411.org for non-partisan information on what will be on your ballot.

Know your rights: We're expecting some regions to have long lines on election day. If you are in line before the polls close, then it is your right to stay until they let you vote. Have questions about voting or see something fishy at the polls? Call our election protection hotline at 888-API-VOTE. Live language assistance is available in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Korean, Bengali, Hindi and Urdu.

Are safe: If you're voting in-person, make sure to wear a mask and social distance. Make sure to eat a full meal if you can and get a good nights sleep so you're ready for the big day!”

Bring your #BaonSaBotohan. Food, water, a mobile charger, hand sanitizer and a coat or umbrella depending on your local weather!

Still looking for more resources? Go to apiavote.org including a guide in Tagalog!
