It’s 2016, which means that voting for the next president of the United States is actually easier than figuring out what your next finely crafted Boomerang should be.
But is casting your ballot even worth it? For women, the stakes are as high as they’ve ever been, considering this year’s main points of contention revolve around health, families, and way-too-personal matters. And while you’d think every #girlboss from coast to coast is ready to hit the ground running and pencil in their candidate of choice, only 59 percent of women eligible to vote showed up to the polls in the 2012 election.
That’s why we’re teaming up with Rock the Vote to encourage you to register to vote, stat. The main reason is simple: #OurVoteCounts. So how can you get started? We made it simple with the registration tool below. Trust us: it takes only two minutes start to finish.
While registration deadlines vary by state (click here to find out yours), you can generally still sign up about one month before the Nov. 8 election, meaning it’s time to do so, ASAP. Ready? Before you start, make sure you have your driver's license. You will need to input your ID number and your document number (which can be found either in the lower left hand corner of the front or the backside of the license above your signature). You will also need to give the last four digits of your social security number. Fill our your e-mail address and state of residence in the fields below, and join InStyle to make your your vote count!
Think you may already be registered? Visit rockthevote.com to check your current registration status. And next time someone quizzes you on why you’re voting, regardless of political preference, simply tell them it’s because #OurVoiceCounts.
