Your Vote Counts: Resources to Prepare for Election Day

September 24, 2020

November 3rd is election day, and your vote counts! The country will be electing a president and New Jersey residents will be voting for a Senator and twelve House Representatives that will serve you in Washington during the next few years. These elected officials will shape policies and the future path of Medicaid, special education, housing, and many other issues that directly affect our community.

Autism New Jersey believes that everyone who can vote should vote. Due to COVID-19, the procedures for voting have changed, but these changes now provide additional options which may make it easier to vote than ever before. Here are some helpful resources to get you prepared for Election Day.

  • Register to Vote – The deadline to register is October 13th
