It’s official: as of today, you can request your mail-in ballot for the November election from coast to coast.

If you’re planning to vote by mail this November, we recommend you start today by requesting your ballot. Because of increased demand due to COVID-19, your local election offices and post offices might be moving slower than usual. Don’t leave your vote until the last minute– request your ballot today.

Then make sure you complete every step of the process correctly and well in advance (millions of mail-in ballots get rejected because of arriving late or small errors).

Voting by mail works differently in every state. Bookmark our Vote From Home page to stay up to date on how the process works in your state.

Pro tip: You must be registered to vote in order to request an absentee ballot. Need to register? Click here
