Super Tuesday is one week from today—a day when 40% of the US population will have an opportunity to select the Presidential candidate they want to see on the ticket in November.
In almost all Super Tuesday states, both Democrats and Republicans will head to the polls to cast their vote for their party’s Presidential nominee. Beyond the Presidential nomination, many states will also hold state-level primaries and Congressional special elections.
However, according to a newly released AIT poll, more than one-third of Super Tuesday Democrats do not know when their state’s primary is being held. For voters under 50, this percentage rises to 50%. Find the full report here.
This Take Action Tuesday, get prepared to head to the polls on Super Tuesday.
- Mark Your Calendar. Check to see when your state’s primary is being held and whether your state offers early voting and/or voting-by-mail. Then, take a moment to mark your calendar, and help to spread the word by sharing your calendar invite with friends, family, and colleagues.
- Check Your Registration. Check your voter registration to make sure your information is up-to-date, and find out whether you are registered with a specific political party. While many states have open primaries, it is important to check if your state’s primary elections are open to everyone or if your primary is closed to voters registered with a specific political party.
- Time Off To Vote. If you are planning to head to the polls in-person on Tuesday, find out which laws exist in your state around mandatory time off to vote.
