We hope you and your family are safe and healthy.
As we grapple with the future of our economy, our communities, and our health, we're also grappling with the future of our elections.
That’s because, especially in this crisis, safely casting a ballot is one of the only ways in which citizens can make their voices heard and keep our democracy healthy.
That’s why FairVote posted a webpage, titled “Ensuring Safe and Fair Elections in a Pandemic,” dedicated to aggregating resources so that voters can stay informed and involved in our elections. No one should have to choose between their own health and casting a ballot. We hope the resources we have provided will help you safely navigate this chaotic time while still exercising your constitutional right to vote.
There is a presidential election and countless local elections and primaries approaching. Some states have postponed upcoming elections; others have not changed their date but have instead switched to mail-in ballots. The changes can be confusing, but we have you covered. We’ve also included resources on obtaining mail-in absentee ballots and candidate petition deadlines.
Additionally, our webpage provides an opportunity to contact your governor to ensure that every eligible citizen has access to safe, accessible ways to register and vote this November. If you are able, we encourage you to reach out!
Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, we are dedicated to keeping voters safe while simultaneously maintaining the integrity of our elections. If you have any suggestions or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us on social media or to contact us at this form. From the entire FairVote family, we wish you safety and good health.
