HOW TO VOTE

Get an absentee or mail-in ballot 

Due to COVID-19, many states have expanded access to an absentee ballot or voting by mail. Check your state’s absentee ballot positioning and application deadline below (many state’s have even already started sending them out!).

Per the Postal Service’s advice, mail in your ballot at least a week in advance (by October 27th), but the earlier the better. Once you receive your ballot, you can cast your vote ASAP! Be sure to read and follow the directions carefully.
