Today's the Day! Don't Forget to Vote Tuesday, November 6!
Today is Election Day 2018! Please remember to vote! Make your voice, make your vote, count. Polls are open until 8 p.m. across the state. If you didn't get the chance to register, you can still do same-day registration at a designated location in your city or town. To find your same-day registration location, click HERE. If you are registered, but unsure where to vote, you can check your polling station HERE.
Please keep children and families in mind when you vote today. The Alliance cannot endorse candidates or political parties, but you can consider candidates who will support essential services for families who need them, candidates who support expanding access to preschool, and candidates who will work to make childcare more affordable. Kids can't vote, so we have to!Read more
