Count Every Ballot
We must ensure every ballot is counted. Here’s what to do right now:
Know Your Rights After Election Day
How do I know if my ballot was received?
Most states have tools to look up if your absentee or mail ballot was received. Find how to check the status of your ballot in your state.
What should I do if I voted with a provisional ballot?
If you ran into issues at the polls and had to vote by “provisional ballot,” contact your local election office to see if they need anything from you to confirm your vote.
What should I do if I think my rights were violated?
If you can’t find the answers to your questions on Rock the Vote’s website, call the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

As new voters, they navigated unfamiliar steps and complex procedures; learned about absentee and early voting options even as many remained uncertain about their residency this fall. They obtained and updated IDs at DMVs with restricted hours; educated themselves about their ballots and voting rights; and organized their friends and family.
Young people’s determination to rise above these barriers is demonstrative of their commitment to see bold, urgent resolution to the grave issues facing our country. No one should expect our demands for justice to let up.
