In keeping with DemocracyUSA's commitments to expand the electorate and increase voter participation, we've made the following links available to help you participate in our democracy.
CanIVote.org - An initiative of the National Association of Secretaries of State, Can I Vote lets you find out whether you're registered, in what jurisdiction, what your polling place is and what deadlines apply to you. It even has links to information about candidates and how to become a pollworker.
GoVote.org - Working Assets and txtvoter have teamed up to register you in 5 minutes. "Just follow our four easy steps -- then print, sign, stamp and mail your form in." The site also has information on volunteering, and it'll let you text-message friends to remind them.
