Election Day is Tuesday , November 4. RIte Care Works (who assist children in need by providing them with the best possible health care), put together this great list to help you and your children get ready to vote. Take this opportunity to make your voice heard on the issues that are most important to our families such as health care and education.
1. Find out where and when you vote!
Please go to the Rhode Island Secretary of State’s Voter Information Center to find out:
– If you are registered
– Where you vote
– What time your polling location is open
If you have any other questions, you can find answers online or call the voting hotline at (401) 222-2340.
2. Tell everyone else to vote on November 4th!
Here’s your assignment: contact family members, friends, and co-workers and remind them to go vote on November 4.
If they don’t know where to go, direct them to the Rhode Island Secretary of State’s Voter Information Center to find out.
3. Read up on the how the Presidential Candidates feel about the issues (e.g. Read HERE what the Presidential candidates are planning to do on the issue of health care.)
4. Put Voting in your Schedule for Tuesday, November 4th!
The easiest time to vote is when you are on your way to do something you would normally do on a Tuesday — like going to or from work, taking a trip to the grocery store, or dropping off the kids at soccer practice. Schedule in an extra Â½ hour on one of these trips to stop by your polling station and vote.
5. Talk to your children about voting!
Talk to your children about why it is important to vote, and ask them if they’d like to come with you on Election Day and see what it’s like. If it just isn’t practical to bring your children take some time today to make arrangements for them so that you can get out and vote.
Read more about voting with kids HERE and HERE on Kidoinfo.
6. If you need a ride to the polls, pick up the phone!
You can call the headquarters of any political party to ask for a ride to the polls. Most local candidates will also give you a ride to the polls. You do not need to vote for the candidate or party that gives you a ride.
