Election 2018: Voter Registration

What if you know that you’re registered to vote, but they can’t find you in the poll books when you go to vote? 

As of May 18, 2018, 18 states and the District of Columbia have same-day voter registration: CA, CO, CT, DC, HI, ID, IL, IA, ME, MD, MN, MT, NH, NC, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. 

To make sure you can vote in these states even if your previous registration has “disappeared”, be sure to take along your ID and a current proof of residence.  Check your state voter information for a list of allowed documents, but generally it’s a valid form of ID (often a photo ID, the list varies by state), and proof of current address (such as a current utility bill, bank statement, copy of a lease/mortgage payment). Some states allow a “voter voucher”, a person registered to vote in the same precinct that vouches for your identity.  (Some restrictions apply.)

ACORN's First Time Homebuyer Program

Intimidating to nearly everyone, the home buying process can seem impossible to millions of low- and moderate-income Americans.  

Beginning in 1986, ACORN Housing’s mortgage counseling program started a program to help first time homebuyers learn about and be better prepared for the process of buying a home. In their first 15 years, they helped over 50,000 families achieve their dreams of homeownership.  

ACORN Housing also helped thousands of existing homeowners avoid foreclosure and preserve their homes by helping them negotiate with lenders. They frequently worked with victims of predatory lending as well as those who were facing serious and unexpected financial hardships.
