Voting safely in-person

Make a Plan

  • Check the deadlines and hours for your polling location — whether you’re doing Early Voting or voting on Election Day.
  • Check your state’s COVID-19 Election information before you head to the polls. The information may change daily, so check often.
  • Complete a sample ballot at home to speed the process of casting your ballot at the polling location.
  • If you’re able, vote early on Election Day — or take advantage of Early Voting if it’s available.
  • Bookmark or print our Know Your Voting Rights information and bring it with you.
  • Bring ID. Check if your state requires identification to vote. We need your voice to count.

Stay safe from COVID

  • Check out these tips on how to vote safely in-person on election day — based on the CDC guidelines.
  • Bring your own black ink pen, or a stylus or similar object for use with touchscreen voting machines.
  • Wash your hands before entering and after leaving the polling location.
  • Masks. The CDC recommends wearing a mask when indoors in public in areas. Some counties might need you to remove your mask for identification purposes.
  • Bring hand sanitizer. After you cast your ballot, touching doors, or any other shared surfaces: sanitize.
  • Be prepared in case you need to wait. Bringing your own snacks and water!
  • Stay 6 feet apart. Just like at the grocery store, don’t shake hands, maintain social distancing.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in lined trash cans.
Voting by Mail

Request a Ballot

  • To vote by mail, request an absentee ballot as soon as possible. Complete the form to request your absentee ballot before the deadline for your state.
  • Be sure to complete and mail-in your absentee ballot well before your state’s deadlines. You can also find your nearest ballot dropbox.
