1. Be a hero to others 🤝
What’s more ‘hero’ than showing up for others? Become a poll worker and help make voters’ votes count. A poll worker’s tasks can include checking voter IDs, distributing ballots, helping elderly and disabled citizens vote, updating voter registration information, and maintaining a safe and orderly polling place. Also, in order to preserve the fairness of elections, 48 states mandate a specific political party makeup of poll workers. (NCSL)

- Don't neglect the Senate race
In a federal election, you’re also voting for a state senator, state assembly leader and depending on your state, a supreme court justice. ICYMI, the Senate also dictates what policies the president can pass and who he can put on federal courts – so make sure to follow the Senate race too.
