We’ve been seeing a lot of very cool VOTE images from artists peppering the instagrams of arts galleries and museums. And there is a mighty trove at PlanYourVote.org, a visual arts initiative that uses “the power of art to promote and encourage citizens to exercise their right to vote”.
They have amassed a library of powerful voting advocacy artworks available for anyone to download and post, like these from Patti Smith (above) and Jenny Holzer, which employs Sojourner Truth’s words, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.”
PlanYourVote.org provides resources to help people plan their vote IN ADVANCE of election day on November 3rd. That is, to register if you have not already, and then plan your strategy so you don’t encounter a glitch on November 3rd. If you don’t plan to vote in person on election day, the options are to vote early in person or to mail in your ballot.
Here are some resources:

Note: In some states, you may cast an absentee ballot in person before Election Day at designated sites around your area. To do this, you must request an absentee ballot from your state. Your state may require you to submit a valid excuse too. You can navigate to your state’s requirements through USA.gov.

You’ll find many resources at the Board of Elections.
