Today is Election Day

Happy Election Day!!! In a word, VOTE. (Every four years on this date, we elect the President, Congress, et al.)

I want to share the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition’s (MTPC) latest awesomeness – they’ve created a “Transgender Communities and Voting Access” guide. Also, the National Center for Transgender Equality has created an “Overcoming Voting Obstacles” guide. Both of these guides are primarily intended to help transgender voters vote -- and to educate about trans voters' challenges.

If you experience a problem at the polls because you're transgender, please let MTPC know, as they are tracking these experiences and working with local organizations to address any issues. You can fill out a form on their website, email, or call them at 617.778.0519.
