COVID-19 & Policy Options for Expanding Mail-in Ballots this November
Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE
COVID-19 is having a profound impact on our democracy, with many states postponing primary elections and changing rules regarding mail-in absentee voting, online voter registration, and polling places to accommodate federal guidelines around social distancing. A secure and accessible election is in the best interest of all Americans, and the CARES Act includes $400 million in emergency funds for states to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus for the 2020 federal election cycle. With less than 7 months to plan and implement sweeping changes, states will need to take swift action to protect voters, election staff, and election integrity. Now is the time to make sure your state is ready for the November election. Learn how you can be an informed and effective advocate for state-level policy change during this one-hour webinar.
