Urban League: Reclaim Your Vote!
Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd. Join the Urban League movement and reclaim your vote! They are seeking volunteers to assist with phone banking, they are providing free rides to the poll, they are working to give teens a voice in this election, and more. See below for some important information and things that you can do to help.
Do not mail your ballot! The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that Wisconsin ballots will not be counted if they are received after election day – even if postmarked by November 3. If you have an absentee ballot that you have not yet returned, DO NOT SEND IT VIA MAIL. Please hand deliver it to the City Clerk’s office or to an official drop off location. These locations include the Goodman South Library located in the Urban League building. Because ballots must arrive at central count locations or at their polling place by 8:00 p.m. on election night in order to be counted, drop boxes will be closed earlier than 8:00 p.m. (times vary depending on location). For those in the City of Madison, click here for the complete list of ballot drop off sites.
Seeking phone bank volunteers! The Urban League is looking for phone bank volunteers from now to Election Day. This can be done from home. At least 5 people are needed making calls each day. The Urban League will provide a brief training. To volunteer, please contact Khalil Thompson at (202) 904-6076 or KThompsoncons@nul.org.
Voting in person on election day? When you go to vote, bring three friends with you. Check your polling location and make sure you are registered at MyVote.wi.gov (you can register at the poll on Election Day). Make sure you have the right ID at https://bringit.wi.gov/. Please review the CDC’s recommendations for voters, don’t forget your mask, hand sanitizer, and your own pen. If you requested an absentee ballot but haven’t returned it, you can still vote in person on Election Day. See: https://wisconsinvote.org/wisconsin-voter-faqs/ for this and other questions. If you have voted, share this information with friends and family!
Need a ride to the poll? The Urban League is helping coordinate FREE rides to the poll. Rides will be available 8 AM to 8 PM on election day. Rides are also available for early voting. Call the Urban League at (608) 729-1200 to schedule your ride. Mask required for all riders.
Wisconsin Teens…”Vote For Me!” They’re too young to vote but teens are finding a voice in this election! Check out these young people fueling a social media campaign challenging adults to vote. These teens share their hopes and fears for the future in the #voteforme video series where they speak frankly about racism, gender discrimination and climate change, urging adults to vote on their behalf.
