Are You Registered to Vote?
There is still time to register to vote – and verify that you are registered – in all 50 states! Even if you voted in the 2020 presidential election and/or the recent primaries, you should verify that you are still registered and that your registration is up-to-date because how you vote, where you vote, when you’re able to vote, and what you’ll need to cast a ballot may have changed.
We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, September 29. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Questions for Discussion:
Have you seen any of the toxic election narratives illustrated in this article online? Have you heard any of them in your personal life? If so, what did you do when you saw or heard them?
What, if anything, would you do if you saw people intimidating poll workers and/or voters on election day? Would you know who to call? If not, where could you find that kind of information?
Have you verified that you are registered to vote since the primary elections? Do you have a plan to vote in place? What will you do to motivate your friends and family to head to the polls this year?
