Here are the details: MomsRising is working with BallotReady, using its new tool to ease the way for every voter in the country to cast their ballot, from voter registration to applying for a mail-in-ballot to how to find early voting locations in your state. The tool is backed up by a team of more than 100 researchers who are micro-monitoring voting developments in every county and state, and building those developments into the tool in real time to facilitate voting no matter where a voter is located, with updates and reminders every step of the way.
This year, with the pandemic, A LOT of misinformation about voting, as well as voter suppression and issues with the USPS in the mix, we strongly suggest that when you make a plan to vote, which includes voting early. You can make a plan to vote early in a couple of ways:
- If you’re planning to vote-by-mail, then please commit to filling out and mailing back your ballot within 24 hours of receiving it.
- If you’re planning to vote in person, then please commit to voting early if that option is open to you in your state.
