The Home Stretch: Election Day is Tuesday, November 8!

 

With just four days until Election Day (Tuesday, November 8), voting is already well underway across the country. More than 23 million Americans have already cast their ballots early and by mail. NLIHC is grateful for all our partners in the nonpartisan Our Homes, Our Votes campaign that are working to boost voter turnout among low-income renters and their allies, enact housing-related ballot measures, and educate candidates about housing solutions. Thank you for making our democracy stronger and elevating housing as an election issue!

If you have not already cast your ballots, visit Vote411.org or use Vote Early Day’s Voter Tool to make your plan to vote. Once you’ve made your voting plan, encourage three friends or family members to make their voting plans, too!

Here are some additional resources to make voting more accessible and ensure your vote is counted:

  • Lyft is offering a 50% discount (up to $10) on rideshares, bikeshares, and scooter rides to the polls on Election Day (November 8). Preload the code VOTE22 into the Lyft app before Election Day and the discount will be applied to your ride to the polling place. Visit Lyft’s website for more information.

  • The Election Protection Coalition manages Election Protection Hotlines in multiple languages. If you have questions about voting or if your right to vote is being challenged, call 866-OUR-VOTE (English), 888-VE-Y-VOTA (Spanish), 844-YALLA-US (Arabic), or 1-888-API-VOTE (English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Urdu, Hindi, and Bengali/Bangla). Visit 866ourvote.org for more information.

    • Check out the Social Media Toolkit for sample language and social media posts to spread the word about voter protection.

  • Our Homes, Our Votes offers comprehensive resources related to nonpartisan voter and candidate engagement at ourhomes-ourvotes.org, including a media toolkit with sample content that you can share on Election Day.
