A Voter's Guide for Those "What If" Situations

Taz and Zahra from the Good Muslim Bad Muslim podcast
Taz and Zahra from the Good Muslim Bad Muslim podcast made a guide for polling place problems

Two internet stars have some advice for anyone planning to vote in person in this year's election: Don't let anyone intimidate you.

Zahra Noorbakhsh and Taz Ahmed co-host the "Good Muslim Bad Muslim" podcast. They made a video voting guide inspired partly by GOP candidate Donald Trump's talk of a "rigged" election.

Their three minute guide is directed at anyone who encounters any kind of problem at their polling place. For example, what should you do if you show up to vote and your name isn't on the voting roster? This video explains how that can happen to anyone with a common name, and how you should respond:

The video also covers:

  • what to do if someone tries to intimidate you
  • your right to a translator
  • when and if you have to show an ID to vote
  • whether you have to vote on everything on the ballot.
