Feel Good Friday - Election Protection

The midterms are coming, the midterms are coming! Feel Good Friday celebrates with a profile of Election Protection.

As explained on their website, "the national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition works year-round to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to vote and have that vote count. Made up of more than 100 local, state and national partners, Election Protection uses a wide range of tools and activities to protect, advance and defend the right to vote."

Established 2001 by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Election Protection provides information and assistance to people in all 50 states. Their resource page links you to partner organizations that can help you find information on registering to vote in person, getting to the polls, voting absentee or helping other people do all of those things.

Election Protection also works with their partners to identify and remove barriers to voting. If you're looking for inspiration you can read people's voting stories and share your own. When you're on the website you can look up resources by state and if you have questions when you're out and about you can call the Election Protection hotline at (866) OUR-VOTE or (866) 687-8683.

The services Election Protection provides are offered to voters year-round, regardless of political party and voting choices. You can support the work they do by making a donationvolunteering and spreading the word by liking their Facebook page and following them on Twitter @866OURVOTE.
