Request an absentee or mail-in ballot. Are your jobs booked back-to-back?If you can’t block time to vote on election day, you may be able to vote by mail. Depending on your state, you can request an absentee ballot in-person, or online here. Remember to check the deadlines for absentee ballots in your state.
Do your homework. Get familiar with what’s on your ballot beforehand. Read through your voter guide to familiarize yourself with the ballot measures and candidates. It’s a lot of homework, but you don’t have to vote on absolutely everything in your ballot. Vote for the issues you care about. It’s okay to leave something blank if you don’t have an opinion.
