We can protect our health and our right to vote.

COVID-19 should not be a political issue, but with presidential primaries and the general election coming up, it’s already impacting our politics. For many, the best way to vote while safeguarding their health will be to vote by mail. That’s why we’re encouraging Congress to provide federal funding and mandate national standards to ensure that every voter has the option to vote by mail.

It is more critical than ever that we make it as easy as possible for all eligible voters to vote by mail in 2020. We are ramping up litigation in GeorgiaMontanaTexas, Tennessee, Michigan, Missouri, South Carolina and Virginia to ensure this happens. No one should have to choose between their health and their vote. Find out how to request an absentee ballot here.
