GET OUT THE VOTE
RESOURCE HUB

“We need more than a victory on November 3rd. We need a mandate that proves that the past few years do not represent who we are or who we aspire to be.”

Kamala Harris, Future Madam Vice President

It will take more than just candidates, campaigns, and organizations to get out the vote. It’s up to every citizen to contact their family, friends, neighbors, and networks to make sure they have a plan to cast their ballots! See below for key voting resources, key election dates, and sample materials you can use to reach out to your people!

Early Voting: Friday, September 18th, 2020 – Monday, November 2nd 2020

Election Day: Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020

It is too late to return your absentee ballot by mail. Drop off your ballot in person at your county election office or an official drop off site by 3:00 PM on Tuesday, November 3rd. CLICK HERE to find out where you can drop off your ballot.

If you still have a mail-in absentee ballot, DO NOT put it in the mail. You must drop it off in person OR vote in person.

You have three options to make your voice heard and VOTE! 

  1. Drop off your absentee ballot in person at your county elections office or an official drop off site *by 3:00 PM* on Tuesday, November 3rd. CLICK HERE to find out where you can drop off your ballot.
  2. Vote early in person at your county elections office or an early voting site. CLICK HERE to find your early voting site. 
  3. Vote in person on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3rd at your polling place. CLICK HERE to find your polling place.

If you have already returned your ballot by mail, CLICK HERE to track your ballot and double check it was received.

  • If your ballot has been accepted, no further action is needed.
  • If your ballot has not been accepted, vote in person — either early or on Election Day. 

The system will not allow you to vote twice. If your absentee ballot is received after you vote in person, your absentee ballot will be spoiled and only your in person vote will be counted.  

Contact your people to make sure they have a plan to cast their ballots! Use these text message and email templates to make sure your family, friends, neighbors, and networks are voting!
