It's National Voter Registration Day and there are officially 42 days left until the November 3rd Presidential Election! With everything going on in the world today, there's nothing more important than letting your voice be heard on all the social and political issues you care about most. To make this easy for you, we've compiled a list of useful resources to help you through it.

 

STEP 1. START BY MAKING SURE YOU CAN VOTE.

CHECK YOUR VOTER STATUS

See if you're registered to vote in just 30 seconds.

REGISTER TO VOTE NOW

Not registered? Register now! Takes just 2 minutes.

STEP 2. KNOW WHAT YOU'RE VOTING ON AND WHO YOU'RE VOTING FOR.

SEE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

Get to know the Presidential Candidates so that you can cast an informed vote in 2020.

SEE CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES

See who's running for seats in the Senate and the House of Representatives.

SEE A SAMPLE BALLOT

Get a sample ballot with candidates and measures you will be voting on.

 

STEP 3. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD BY VOTING!

Both voting in person and voting by mail have a long history of trustworthiness in the US. Voter fraud is extremely rare across voting methods and each voter's identity and eligibility are verified before their ballot is counted. Additionally, mail ballots in particular require extra steps for validation after they are returned by the voter (e.g. signature matching and ballot tracking).

FIND YOUR POLLING PLACE

Grab your mask and head to your local polling place to cast your vote (social distance style)! Here are the CDC's recommendations on protecting yourself and your family.

HOW TO VOTE BY MAIL

DID YOU KNOW: Americans have been voting by mail since the Civil War! Back then, President Lincoln wanted to give soldiers a way to vote from the battlefield. Today, US troops stationed overseas routinely vote by mail, and several states now hold elections almost entirely by mail.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AS A VOTER

It is absolutely positively 100% illegal for anyone to try to stop you from voting. Report any illegal obstructions to Election Protection (866-687-8683) immediately.
