Saturday, October 23 - Vote Early Day

All Day

Vote Early Day is a new civic holiday founded by companies, nonprofits, election administrators, and influencers to make sure Americans know about and take advantage of our options to vote early. More than 200 million Americans are eligible to vote early but the rules -- both for in-person and by-mail options -- vary widely all over the country and have been changing recently, causing confusion and preventing voters from casting their ballots. The inaugural Vote Early Day is scheduled for Saturday, October 23rd. Learn more, and check out this resource guide.


Monday, November 1 - Election Hero Day

On November 1st, we will recognize the immense importance and work of election administration teams, poll workers and more across the nation. More details to come!
