Don’t forget to vote!
Tomorrow — Tuesday, November 3 — is the last day of voting in this year’s election, and we want to urge you one last time: make sure you get out and vote. Below, you’ll find some resources to help find your polling place, see what is on your ballot, and learn what to do if you have any difficulties voting tomorrow.
While the election ends tomorrow, the League’s coverage of what comes next, and our work promoting bicycle friendly policy and investment, will continue. In fact, with every seat in the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate on the ballot, what comes next is just the beginning of our next big task for better biking: the future of the transportation bill.
To learn much more about the League’s take on what happens next, join me on Thursday, November 12th, at 3pm ET for a webinar on what the election results mean for bicycling, and for the next transportation bill.
Want to listen but can’t. make it next Thursday? Register now and we will send you an email when it is online.
Just like you might plan a ride, now is the time to make a plan to vote: find your polling place, schedule a time on Tuesday, November 3, into your calendar, and make sure that logistics don’t stop your ballot from counting.

I think it might be too late to mail my ballot, are there other options?
