Next Tuesday, November 5 is Election Day

It Is Time to Get Out and Vote in New Jersey!

Next Tuesday, November 5, is election day in New Jersey. And it is time to get out and voted and to remind your fellow voters to vote!

In New Jersey, all 80 New Jersey Assembly races are on the ballot along with the 1st district Senate seat in South Jersey.  Sample ballots in New Jersey also featured municipal elections in some communities.
 
The polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m.  Are you registered to vote but do not remember where to vote?  You can use this link to find your polling location. 
 
Some tips and reminders for yourself and those you work with:
 
  • Do you have a plan to vote tomorrow?  How can you encourage your fellow workers to also make a plan?
  • Can you organize group voting?
  • Remind yourself and fellow voters on what you need to bring with you to vote
  • Can you help organize rides and child care for voters who need assistance?
 
The National Low Income Housing Coalition (NLIHC) reminds us that low-income people in America historically vote at significantly lower rates than higher-income people, and renters vote at much lower rates than homeowners. Only when lower-income renters become a strong voting block will candidates pay attention to their need for decent, accessible, affordable homes. 
 
Affordable housing advocates are encouraged to do all they can to ensure their constituents vote – because affordable homes are built with ballots every bit as much as they are built with bricks and mortar.
 
NLIHC has developed an Our Homes, Our Votes Voter Engagement Toolkit focused on the 2020 election.  You can check it out for some last minute tips on how to engage votes on election day and also to start planning for the 2020 general election.
