Fall is officially here and that can only mean one thing: Election Day is right around the corner! Election day is Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020. While the biggest race on the ballot will be for President, there are many down ballot races with important local and national implications.
As many people claim the 2020 election to be the most consequential in a generation, it is important to head to the polls as an informed voter. That process of becoming informed can be difficult. With huge differences in voting procedures and requirements that vary from state to state, voting can appear to be a daunting task. Fordham Library’s new Voting Resources and History Research Guide is available to help you make sense of it all and exercise your right to vote as a confident voter.
The guide is designed to empower you to learn more about your rights as voters and provide resources for those seeking to register to vote, learn more about candidates, request absentee ballots, and more. It includes links to the NY Board of Elections, various reputable non-partisan organizations with helpful tools and information, and links to voting tools for other states. The guide also provides information on the history and current issues of voting in America.
Please reach out to us at the library with any questions or concerns about this guide or your research. Thank you for your interest and remember to vote!
