Vote like your rights depend on it . . .

. . . because they do!

More than 98 percent of FFRF members are registered voters (see Page 3), something FFRF is very proud of! Nevertheless, in this unprecedented election year in the midst of a pandemic, FFRF urges you to make a voting plan.

Three-quarters of the nation can vote by mail. (Exceptions: As of press-time, if you live in New York, Indiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana or Texas, an excuse is required for absentee voting.)

Since there is great concern over delivery by the U.S. Postal Service, be sure to request your mail-in ballot now, if you have not done so. (If you live in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Jersey. Vermont,Hawaii and D.C., registered voters should automatically receive a ballot by mail.)

Fill out and return your mail-in ballot at the earliest time permitted (and at least eight days before Nov. 3, to be sure your ball

ot is received in time). Or hand-deliver it to an early polling site if permitted in your area. If you can’t vote by mail, or can’t vote early in your location, please put on that mask and vote in person on Nov. 3.

P.S. Encourage healthy young colleagues or family members to consider being a poll worker as there is a shortage this year due to COVID-19 concerns. It’s paid, may include bonus pay, takes an hour of training and will help ensure all votes count.
