ELECTORAL VOTE
(VOTER ROLLS)




Voting that does not happen in person on Election Day but instead occurs another way (generally by mail). All states allow for some form of absentee/mail-in balloting. Some states require voters to provide a valid excuse to vote absentee/by mail, while others allow any eligible voter to cast an absentee/mail-in ballot.

Requirements and rules for registering to vote that may include requirements related to age, criminal history or status, time before or after an election, valid forms of identification and more.
Do not make the assumption that the rules have not changed since the last time that you may have voted!

Am I registered?




A strategy used to influence an election by discouraging or preventing specific groups of people from voting. Unlike political campaigning which attempts to change likely voting behavior by changing opinions of potential voters, activating inactive voters, or registering new supporters, voter suppression attempts to reduce the number of voters who might vote against a candidate or proposition.
