Know Your Voting Rights

Nov 5, 2012

NASW has been vocal on the issue of voting rights. We encourage social workers to understand their own rights and those of their clients. Voter suppression efforts across the country have resulted in intimidation and confusion about who can vote and what identification they need to bring with them on Tuesday, November 6.

Further, individuals in the states affected by Hurricane Sandy may not know about extended hours and opportunties, or may have trouble getting to the polls tomorrow.

If you live in New York, visit the Board of Elections to access updated voting information.

If you live in New Jersey, visit the Board of Elections to access updated voting information.

Visit the American Civil Liberties Union to learn more about voting rights in every state.

We encourage all of our members to vote tomorrow. If you are an NASW member, you can login and learn more about NASW PACE endorsements for the 2012 election.

For a full briefing on state-level election reform legislation, visit the National Conference of State Legislatures.
