Normal life has changed so much because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but one thing has not changed: elections will still take place on November 3, 2020.

Take action today and let your governor and secretary of state know that young people expect safe, healthy, and fair elections in November.
*In 38 states, the secretary of state is the chief election official. In Alaska and Utah, the lieutenant governors serve this function, and in ten other states, there is another official with this responsibility.
