Registering to vote is just the first step to fulfilling your duty as an outdoorist to #VoteTheOutdoors––do you have a voter plan yet? With so many different deadlines and paths towards casting a ballot, it’s crucial to make a plan that works best for you.
Step one: REGISTER. Check your registration status, make sure all your information is up to date, and be aware of local deadlines.
Step two: CHOOSE HOW YOU’LL VOTE. Will you vote by mail or in-person? Will you vote early or on Election Day? Figure out the method of voting that works best for you and your lifestyle. Request your ballot or find your local polling place.
Step three: RESEARCH YOUR BALLOT. Get to know the candidates, key races and ballot initiatives. Check out Outdoor Industry’s OIA Voters Guide to get started.
Step four: TELL A FRIEND. Commit to vote, and invite your friends, family, climbing partners, campmates and co-workers to make a plan too.
