Because the COVID-19 pandemic poses a life-and-death threat to many elderly voters, election officials are expecting an unprecedented number of absentee ballots used in the general election this fall. Millions are expected to vote by mail, which could overwhelm administrators with an avalanche of absentee ballot requests, months away from the election. Those who are planning to vote by mail in November are advised to request their ballot ASAP.
Fair Elections Center has created a 2020 Early Bird Mail-In Ballot Request Guide with direct links to election officials in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The user-friendly guide is designed to quickly connect voters with the information they need to get the process immediately started.
