Voting Information

By making a plan to vote before the month is over, you’re exercising your power to effect change and make sure your voice is heard. 

We’re expecting a record breaking number of mail-in ballots this year, so it’s critical we help our election officials process our ballots quickly and efficiently by voting early – either by mail or at an in-person early voting location.

And don’t forget – we shouldn’t expect results on election night in states like FL, GA, PA and – that’s ok. We want election officials to count every vote.
