It’s time to GOTV!
The election is less than one month away and voting has already begun so in these final weeks, it’s all about getting out the vote (GOTV)! Voter registration has already closed in 14 states but there are multiple states’ registration deadlines looming. This handy chart lays it all out or you can check out AIT’s Voter Guides for detailed information on voting in your state.
*Note – If you live in Florida, voter registration has been extended till 7 pm TONIGHT, due to registration issues Monday.
Women are the majority of the electorate, so we’ll be focusing on key topics related to planning your vote each week leading up to the election.
This #TakeActionTuesday, GOTV!
- Plan Ahead – Registration, registration, registration, we can’t stress it enough! You can’t vote if you’re not registered. If your state is still accepting voter registrations please take time today and double-check your registration status, then help five friends do the same.
- Research – Nine states, plus the District of Columbia, will conduct their elections primarily by mail by this year. 35 others will allow any voter to request a ballot to vote by mail. If your planning to vote by mail make sure you review your state’s request deadlineand request your ballot.
- Missed Deadline – If you miss your state’s ballot request deadline, early voting may be an option. Check out our voting guide to review your state’s rules and find your polling location.
- Track your ballot – If you’ve requested your absentee ballot but still haven’t received it, you can reach out to your State Board of Elections to track your ballot and ensure you don’t miss your state’s mailing deadline.
- Donate – Supportthe grassroots education and mobilization AIT does to get women to the polls in 2020 and beyond.
