Election Day, November 3, falls during AWHONN Convention. This unfortunate circumstance arose because of the limited availability of convention facilities following the rescheduling of Convention from the original June dates.
AWHONN urges those coming to convention to plan to vote early or absentee. Here are some resources to help you.
Most states require advance registration to vote. If you are not registered, then you will need to do so. If you have moved since registering, then you will need to register again with your new address. Your state’s deadline to register could be up to 30 days before the election. Vote.govcan help you register to vote in your state.
Even if you have registered to vote, some states periodically invalidate the registrations of those who have missed voting in recent elections. You can verify that your registration is still valid by checking here.
To vote when you will not be home on Election Day, you will need to either vote early or vote absentee. Several states offer early voting at a limited number of polling places. To check if this would be an option for you go here. To request an absentee ballot, gohere. Absentee ballots must be mailed in prior to Election Day or dropped off at a designated place. Some states require a valid excuse for voting absentee. Being out of town for work should be a valid excuse.
We hope to see you in Las Vegas, but understand if you need to vote in person. Our 2021 AWHONN Convention will take place in Orlando in June.
