Day 6 – Take a buddy voting!

#30DaysOfAction

.

This midterm election will have major implications for transgender and non-binary people. The current Administration has enacted and proposed many policy changes designed to make life harder and less protected for trans and non-binary children, youth, adults, and their families. If that is not the future you want, do not give up your primary power to change it: vote!

If you know a(nother) trans or non-binary adult, offer to take them to the polls. Especially in states where ID is required to vote, voting can be daunting for trans people whose ID doesn’t exactly match their name and/or gender presentation. Having a friend to help advocate or just provide moral support can be the difference between voting and not voting.

Go equipped with contingency plans. The National Center for Transgender Equality has a simple checklist for trans voters at: https://transformthevote.org/voting
