Like the rest of 2020, this year’s election will be unlike any other in history. The November 3 election is just around the corner, and we need your help. 

Since the last election, a lot of new rules and information have been released. We’ve compiled an election voting guide to help voters stay informed, make a plan to vote, and practice their civic duty. 


When you receive your mail ballot, it will arrive with both a smaller secrecy envelope and a larger return envelope. Every mail ballot must be filled out correctly and sent back to your local county elections office in these two envelopes.

Please follow these easy steps — if they are not followed, your ballot will NOT be counted:

  1. Fill out your ballot with a blue or black pen.
  2. Seal your ballot in the secrecy envelope. You must use the secrecy envelope in order for your ballot to count.
  3. Put the secrecy envelope containing the ballot into the larger return envelope. The return envelope has the address of your county elections office on one side. 
  4. Complete and sign the voter declaration on the back of the return envelope in order for your ballot to count.
  5. Return your ballot — by mail, in person at your county elections office, or other official drop-off location.

Local Election Resources

Can I volunteer to help? 

Yes! There are plenty of ways to volunteer for this year’s election: call, text, or send postcards to voters, distribute lawn signs or literature, make a donation, volunteer with local campaigns or your ward/district/zone, or register friends to vote.

Your Vote is Your Voice. Stay Informed, Make a Plan, and Vote Blue from bottom to top on the ballot on November 3. Make sure you are heard on Election Day and every day by voting.
