We at Technical.ly are, um, enthusiastic about voting.
And with that not-hyperbole-really-the-most-consequential-of-our-lives election a mere 25* days away, we want to do our part in encouraging voter turnout in the markets we cover.
So, just in case you’ve been meaning to register and need one extra boost: Below, find links to do so in Delaware, Virginia, D.C., Maryland and Pennsylvania.
We’ll update this short guide as we find new resources to include. And if you’re still unsure of the best way for you to vote in this year’s General Election — or if you live in a state not mentioned here — the recently formed Voter Communications Task Force, whose members include former Delaware governor Jack Markell, have launched votercommunication.org. The site offers detailed information about how to vote in each state, and will be updated through Election Day.
