It’s too late to mail in your ballot, but you still have options

If you’ve voted already with a mail-in ballot, thank you. If you have received an official mail-in ballot and haven’t yet completed it, you have a few options:

  1. You can bring your unvoted, blank ballot (the whole thing, envelopes and all) to your polling place, turn it in to a poll worker, and vote in person. If you were sent a mail-in ballot but misplaced it, then you can cast a provisional ballot.
  2. Another option is to complete your mail-in ballot (following the directions very closely) and hand deliver it to your county election’s office or to an official drop box location near you. Mail-in ballots must be received no later than 8 p.m. on Nov. 3 – Election Day. So, I wouldn’t recommend mailing any ballots at this point, since they may not arrive in time to be counted.

You can find information about where to drop off your ballots here.

If you have any questions, check out my video above outlining the options you have with a mail-in ballot.

Whatever you do, don’t miss this opportunity. Please vote!


Find the candidates who support public education in your community

Before you cast your vote, make sure you take time to learn about the candidates — from president to Congress to the state Legislature — and where they stand on the issues you care about.

PSEA has resources to help you make informed choices. One of those is schoolhouseballot.com, where you can punch in your info and find a list of local candidates recommended by your colleagues as champions of public education.

We want you to know what each candidate believes about the issues that impact your schools, your professions, and our union. We want to do everything we can to help you be vote ready.


Biden vs. Trump on education

 

No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, as educators, we need to take a close look at each candidate’s track record, public statements, and campaign platforms to make a truly informed decision.

That’s why we laid out in the November issue of Voice where Joe Biden and Donald Trump stand on key issues that affect you most: education funding, educator compensation, class size, workers’ rights, and school privatization.

Just the facts, nothing more, nothing less. Check it out below.


Did you know? Betsy DeVos is most-sued secretary in history of U.S. Dept. of Ed.

In case you needed any more evidence of what a disaster Secretary DeVos has been in her role as U.S. Education Secretary, the Detroit Free Press shared an article pointing out that she is the ”most-sued secretary in the 41-year history of the U.S. Department of Education,” and detailing just how strongly she has fought against our public schools, our students, and the entire department she was erroneously tasked to lead.

Check out our timeline of Betsy DeVos failures, which appeared in the November issue of Voice, for a more complete picture.
