About the Event

If you plan to vote by mail, don’t wait to get started! Request your ballot NOW and follow the steps below ASAP. STEP 1: REQUEST YOUR BALLOT TODAY In most states you need to request a ballot be sent to you.


Need help requesting a ballot? Tan France, Elaine Welteroth, Misty Copeland, and more walk you through the process in this video >> STEP 2: FILL OUT YOUR BALLOT Small mistakes can get your ballot rejected, so it’s important to carefully follow all instructions. Instructions vary by state, but keep an eye out for these things that can trip people up:

  • In order for your vote to be counted you must meet your      state’s deadlines. Return your ballot ASAP!
  • Use the correct ink color specified in the instructions.
  • Don’t change your signature -- use the one on your ID      or voter registration form.
  • If required, place your completed ballot in the secrecy      sleeve provided, and then place it inside the return envelope.
  • Include any documentation requested in the instructions.
  • Sign and seal your envelope.

STEP 3: RETURN YOUR BALLOT ASAP You can return your ballot by mail, at a secure drop-off location, or at your polling place depending on your state.

20 states provide pre-paid postage, while other states require voters to pay the postage on their return ballot envelopes. A first-class stamp costs $0.55 and can be purchased at:

  • Post offices
  • Grocery stores
  • Banks
  • Pharmacies
  • Gas stations
  • Office supply stores
  • Online at

There’s a lot at stake in these elections -- we can’t afford to mess around. Request your mail-in ballot now, fill it out carefully by following all instructions, and return it immediately.

P.S. If you have any questions, the Election Protection Hotline is here to help. Give them a call at 866-OUR-VOTE. (I recommend saving that number in your phone, just in case!)
