Voting in a pandemic

Due to Covid-19, voting is going to look a little different this year. This is my first year being able to vote legally. It can be overwhelming for first time voters since we may not all know the process. States are trying to make it feasible for everyone to get an opportunity to vote by November 3rd. While the polls will still be an option, you can also do early voting or fill out an absentee ballot. The absentee ballot can be printed from home, filled out, and then mailed. This is the safest option in terms of social distancing. I wanted to share this information because it is something I did not know about at first. You can go to to find the absentee ballot, as well as find poll locations, early voting locations, and ballot drop boxes. The website gives a lot of useful information if you are new to voting and are unsure of what to do. I encourage everyone to participate in voting in this election, and to take advantage of the absentee ballot to reduce numbers at the polls.
