Get Out the Vote 2012

Get Out the Vote

We want to remind all members that you must be registered to vote by October 12th if you want to vote in the November 6th election and this deadline is approaching quickly! As a REALTOR®, we need you to vote for candidates at the local, state and national levels who support the REALTOR® Party and who make the right decisions for your profession and your clients. Simply put, it’s critical that every REALTOR® registers to vote in this year’s elections.

Even if you think you are registered, please double check your registration status. You can also register to be an absentee voter if you won’t be able to vote on November 6th.  Please watch the NCAR website and social media pages for more Get Out the Vote information. The strength of the REALTOR® Party depends on your involvement.

Not sure if you are registered? Use this handy website to find out. It can tell you where you are registered and your polling location.

If you are not yet registered, visit the REALTOR® Action Center today to become a registered voter. The deadline for voter registration is Friday, October 12th.

Registered and need to request an absentee ballot? You can do that here.
