From the ACLU:

Here’s your Election Day toolkit. Screenshot, save, and share anything you need below – and remember, you can find further voter resources for your state here.

Before You Vote:

✓ Double check your state’s voter guidelines again for your poll site location, ballot return deadlines, and other details.

✓ Be sure you’ve researched what’s at stake in your local races and ballot measures.

✓ If you have a mail-in ballot that you have not returned yet, use a drop box or return it in-person, if your state allows.

✓ In case your line to vote is longer: Pack water, food, and entertainment (a book, music*, etc.).

TIP: The ACLU’s Let People Vote tool has state-specific voter information, down-ballot guides, voting tips, and more. Go to your state page now or visit:

Know Your Rights on Election Day With This List:

→ If the polls close while you’re still in line, stay in line. You have the right to vote.

→ If you make a mistake on your ballot, ask for a new one.

→ If the machines are down at your polling place, ask for a paper ballot.

→ If you run into any problems or have questions on Election Day, call the Election Protection Hotline:

Spanish: 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA / 1-888-839-8682

For Bengali, Cantonese, Hindi, Urdu, Korean, Mandarin, Tagalog, or Vietnamese: 1-888-274-8683

Finally, a Few Reminders About This Election:

1. We won’t have the final results tomorrow night, and that’s okay. The presidential winner often reported on election night has always been based on projections anyways. Counting every vote is the most important thing, and that may take longer this year due to the pandemic and more people voting by absentee ballot.

2. Our legal and advocacy teams are primed and ready to protect your civil liberties at the polls – and wherever we may be needed. We’ll be here no matter what happens.

3. Just in case you need this one more time: VOTE. If you’ve voted already, keep yourself occupied (and ease any anxiety) on Election Day by checking with your friends on their voting plans – and send this toolkit along to them, too.
