With a record number of Americans now registered to vote, AFGE has taken the lead of a voter protection campaign with the Women’s and Fair Practices Departments. The objective of the voter protection campaign is to have the nation’s citizens successfully get to the polls and cast ballots in this upcoming election. There is no reason that a registered voter should be turned away from the polls. Each state has rules and regulations for voting that should suffice in keeping the polls organized and under control. Only those set rules should determine what occurs at the polls, including who is turned away from voting.
This election season, new and young voters will play a major role in deciding who our next elected officials will be—only if they are treated the same as other voters. Blacks, whites, democrats, republicans, seniors and the youth (to name a few) all deserve the same respect in this election process.
If you are registered to vote, you have a right and a duty to cast a ballot! AFGE wants your vote to be protected and counted!
