Actions, Democracy

This is part of our action toolkit to protects eligible voters’ health, safety, and access to the ballot box in 2020. Find more on this here.

State officials like secretaries of state have the power to protect our democracy. Young people and all Americans deserve safe, healthy, and fair elections this November.

Use our tool tweet at your officials and demand they use the power at their disposal.  

In case you didn’t know, in most states, this official can:

  • prioritize vote-by-mail options so that all registered voters have the option to vote by mail (also called “absentee ballot”) without providing a justification or excuse, 
  • expand early voting days and polling sites to reduce lines on election day, 
  • where feasible, increase the number of polling sites on election day to reduce lines and crowds for those who choose to vote in-person,
  • make online voter registration and same-day registration available to all eligible voters.

These state officials are obligated to not only protect your right to vote, but also guarantee that every voter has the information they need to participate fully in the election.

Take action with us today.

*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.
