In 2016, almost 92 million eligible Americans did not vote in the presidential election. In 2020, the COVID-19 crisis poses a severe challenge for voter registration and voter turnout across the country, particularly for women, underserved people, and at-risk groups who are being hit hardest by the pandemic.

Women cast almost ten million more votes than men in the 2016 elections. However, voter registration is far below normal projections for a presidential election year, and many voters may fail to cast ballots without clear, reliable access to vote-by-mail or other safe voting procedures. This risk is heightened for Latina and Asian voters whose voter turnout rates were nearly 20% lower than White women and Black women voters in 2016. 

This Take Action Tuesday, take action to encourage and support safe and fair voting for all Americans.
