Check Out the U.S. Vote Foundation, Which Tells You Everything You Need to Know to Cast a Ballot

Check out the U.S. Vote Foundation, an impressive one-stop shopping center on how to cast a ballot, whether you’re at home, overseas, or in the military.


Founded in 2005, the U.S. Vote Foundation is a private, non-profit, nonpartisan organization based in Delaware. Its website offers state-specific voting information for all 50 states as well as U.S. territories–ID requirements, eligibility requirements, election dates and deadlines, etc.


It can help you request an absentee ballot, and help you figure out what to do if you’re overseas or serving in the military. And it can help you find the contact information for your local election office. And if you’re stuck, you can consult the Voter Help Desk.
