Vote Today!

No excuses! On this day — today, Election Day, Tuesday, November 4th, 2014 — you’ve got to get out and vote to, among other things, protect women’s rights, including access to birth control, safe abortions, good sex ed, and equal pay for equal work. Even if it doesn’t seem like there’s any difference between Republicans and Democrats these days, there is — Democrats act in favor of the issues we’ve mentioned above, Republicans don’t. So when in doubt, go Dem!

Planned Parenthood has a great Voter Guide: You just enter the zip code you vote in, and PP gives you the state and federal candidates they endorse. Enter your full address and they’ll even give you your polling place!

Feminist Campus and Feminist Majority Foundation have a state-by-state list of all the sketchy ballot measures to watch out for today.

So if you haven’t already, find out where to vote, make a plan to get there or go right now! Help ensure we move forward, not backwards, when it comes to reproductive freedoms and women’s rights.



  1. Johnny,
    I used to be in your camp where only informed voters should vote but I’ve completely changed camps. I’m so in favor of everyone voting that I think there should be economic penalties for not voting and here is why…

    Currently the only people who are really into politics are the people on the extremes who want to drastically change our country. The majority of people who are pretty happy with this country are less inclined to vote because they are happy. This creates a dangerous situation where the people who run our government are people with extreme views rather than people who really represent the majority of Americans. The best way to fix this is to get more Americans to vote so that moderate Americans who value compromise get political candidates who represent them.

    Only in American politics is the word moderate an insult.

    Just something to think about.

  2. I think a lot of people shouldn’t vote. If you’ve paid zero attention to the political landscape all year long, please, stay home today. There’s no worse voter than an ignorant voter.
