Today is Vote Early Day, a moment to remind you that if you can vote early – in person – before Election Day, you should.

North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis supported the nomination of Lawrence VanDyke to the Ninth Circuit Court -- a man who spent his career opposing environmental protections. Help get out the vote in North Carolina.

VanDyke supported the expansion of oil and gas on public lands, opposed protecting one million acres of the Grand Canyon watershed from uranium mining, and challenged protections of sage-grouse habitats.

Community members, international performers, political representatives, candidates and activists have gathered for a virtual concert as Hudson Valley Votes comes together to get out the vote in the most important election the United States has ever faced.

Hurricanes have barreled towards almost every coastal state east of the Mississippi this year. A key contributor? Warmer than average water surface temperatures.

Former Governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick will launch a new podcast series on what it means to be American in 2020 and beyond. In the weeks before the Election, where not just the character of the candidates or the parties but of the country itself is on the ballot, Patrick will step back from politics to explore today's national character in conversation with a diverse set of artists, actors, political activists, thought leaders and everyday strivers.

More than 50 artists and musicians are coalescing around Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Marquita Bradshaw, who made history as the first Black woman to win a statewide party nomination in Tennessee.

On Tuesday, October 20th, Nashville native William Tyler—with the help of fellow musicians Tristen, Erin Rae, Margo Price, Robyn Hitchcock and Emma Swift, Roseanne Cash, Caitlin Rose, and many more —will take to the airwaves in support of Bradshaw’s campaign. The telethon, hosted by Third Man Records, hopes to build on Bradshaw’s already snowballing momentum. 

Today is National Voter Registration Day, a day dedicated to making sure everyone has a chance to register to vote before the election this fall.

Through their joint initiatives, Global Citizen and HeadCount will mobilize support from artists, entertainers, media, corporations, and nonprofit organizations, to give young Americans the tools to use their voice in the November 3, 2020 election and beyond.

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

At 6:30 PM EST on Sunday, July 12th, Down Home NC, Equality NC, Mijente, Poder NC, and RuralOrganizing.org will host a digital concert to launch a voter turnout campaign in the battleground state of North Carolina.
