TLOD, Inc. on Why You Should Vote Early

Published on 10/25/2022



Why should you vote early?

      Life happens. School, work, flat tires, bad weather, doctor’s appointments, and more are all reasons you may not be able to cast your ballot on November 8th. Making a plan to vote early helps ensure that when life happens, you’re still able to make your voice heard in our elections.

      In some states, it’s harder to vote. We can’t ignore that voter suppression is happening across the country, whether it’s closing polling locations, removing drop boxes, or long lines. So, let’s make sure we show up and show our power early.

      Our elections are too important to risk not being able to make your voice heard. So, make your plan to vote early and encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same.
