20 Actions in 20 Days

  1. Check your voter registration status (yes, even if you’re already registered to vote). Make sure to double-check your status — some states aren’t required to inform you when they purge the voter rolls.
  2. Register right now if you have to. If you’re all set, skip to #3. Every state sets their own key voting dates — some allow you to register as late as Election Day, but most have strict deadlines. Make sure you’re prepared by registering to vote as soon as possible.
  3. If you’re planning to vote by mail, request your ballot right away. Voting by mail is safe — even the president does it! Because of COVID-19, some states have transitioned to all mail-in voting, so make sure to plan ahead. If you meet your state’s requirements to vote absentee, make sure to apply for or request your ballot as soon as you can. Then, mail it back by the deadline (again, every state is different) or drop it off at your local ballot drop boxes.
  4. If you’re planning on voting in-person, consider voting early. The election doesn’t only happen on November 3 — many states allow you to vote early to avoid long lines on Election Day. Since some states are only accepting mail-in ballots, be sure to check out your options and make a note of your state’s early voting deadlines. Then, grab your mask and hand-sanitizer and head to the polls at your designated precinct!
