Check Your Mail For An Absentee Ballot Application
You should be getting an absentee ballot application in the mail, as seen in the picture above. Democrats voting in the June 23rd primary have the option of voting my mail. In order to do so, you must fill out an absentee ballot application, which is being sent to New York voters. You can also click here  to download the application from the BOE website and check the box labeled “temporary illness.” 

If you don’t want to vote by mail – don’t worry. It’s one of three ways you can vote in the primary.

You can also Vote Early starting on June  13th or you can Vote on Primary Day – which is June 23rd.

Please be a voter – every election matters!

Flip the West is looking for people to participate in virtual text banks to reach voters in Colorado in advance of the June 30th primary.

Episode 39: NY State Senator Shelley Mayer

Time To Write Letters and Postcards

Join the national effort The Big Send to send 10 million letters to voters before the general election in November.

Here’s how it works: over the next few months, you write letters (yes, physical letters!) to voters, sharing why you vote and why it’s important than they do. You put them in envelopes and stash them in a safe spot in your house.

Then, in October, you’ll get a reminder to slap a stamp on each envelope and drop it in the mail. The United States Postal Service will deliver the messages to each voter and, if we’re successful, 10 million more people will vote!

You can also join IW’s postcarding efforts to help elect Democrats around the country. Email for more information.

COVID-19 proves we need to be able to vote by mail; however the United States Postal Service is in serious danger of going bust with elections right around the corner. The USPS has also reaffirmed their policy to deliver mail-in ballots without postage so please sign this petition,this onethis one.and this new one from the American Postal Workers Union. Please share widely!
