ELECTION DAY IS N0VEMBER 6, 2012


The states listed are projected to be the key battleground states for the 2012 presidential election. We strongly encourage you to check your state's voter identification requirements and make certain you have the proper credentials. Even if you believe you are registered it is important that you check your current registration, and if you have moved make certain your registration information is up to date. Make certain you are aware of the place (Polling Place) you are assigned to cast your vote. If you have a child or family friend attending college out of state , make certain that you know the law regarding student voting. See the Brennan Center Student Voter Guide below. Pay attention to the voter registration deadline.
