The American Federation of Teachers sent out an email with valuable voting info, noting "Now, more than ever, it is important for working people like us to vote -- to shape a nation we can be proud of." The AFT is an affiliate of the AFL-CIO. It was founded in 1916 and today represents 1.7 million members in more than 3,000 local affiliates nationwide.

The email mentioned the Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE. Operators will be standing by in case you encounter any issues when you go to vote.

Also included was a link to the page on vote.org where you can find out:

* How to check your registration

* How to locate your polling place

* What's on your ballot

While it is true that voting machines can be and are tampered with, and because of this type of illegal activity, not all votes will be counted appropriately, it is also true that in some circumstances votes are counted correctly. It's not always possible to know which is which. In the current election, any razor thin margin of progress could make a big difference. So while moving toward full voting integrity, many feel that it can be advantageous to continue to vote.
