Help fix rejected PA absentee ballots

7 mins read

Thousands of Pennsylvania ballots could be thrown out because they lack signatures, dates, or secrecy envelopes.

Voters can still fix these ballots! Volunteer to call and tell them how

Urgent voter protection alert!

Every vote counts so let’s make sure they get counted! 

Republicans have successfully sued to REJECT “naked” ballots that lack an extra secrecy envelope or ballots that are missing signatures. And now, ballots are being rejected if missing the date, despite the ballot being postmarked and time-stamped by the county. Voter suppression is here and it’s real. 

We have lists of thousands of PA voters whose ballots MAY NOT BE COUNTED unless they request a replacement OR vote provisionally on Election Day.  

Volunteer to help us CALL voters at risk of ballot rejections and tell them how to fix their ballots. Sign up here.

And REMEMBER! If you or anyone you know still has a mail-in ballot, it must be RECEIVED by the county election office by 8PM on Tuesday, November 8. Use an official drop box or use a provisional ballot at your regular polling place on Election Day – DO NOT mail it! 

Thanks for defending the right to vote! We appreciate you.

Turn PA Blue doesn’t stop until the polls close

Volunteer on Election Day – in person or remotely.

We are in the final week of the most consequential election of our lives (again) – and Turn PA Blue is filling gaps and pulling out all the stops to WIN!

We’ve got teams of experienced canvassers heading to competitive districts where they’re needed the most. Heat, rain, sleet or snow won’t stop our volunteers from encouraging voters to make their voices heard!

TPAB doesn’t stop until the polls close so we must refresh our resources to get through this final push. We need to pay phone bills, text more voters, and even send pizza to voters standing in line, if that’s what it takes.

We’ve made over 1.5 million voter contact attempts at the doors, on the phones, and by text. Help us finish strong and GET DEMOCRATS OUT TO VOTE!

And, volunteer on Election Day – in person or remotely.

Our teams are rallying Democratic voters to cast their ballots. They are telling them that if we vote, we WIN! 

Our volunteers are bringing their A game because we’ve got a democracy to save! With your help, we can achieve victory for Dems up and down the ballot.

We are in the all-hands-on-deck stretch, and for those that want to help us make history, new recruits will always be welcome. Volunteer on Election Day – in person or remotely.

Ask not what democracy can do for you, ask what you can do to save for democracy!

Phone Bankers Needed for Tuesday Shifts!

Join our friends at Working Families Party to help voters whose ballots were rejected cure their ballots. Especially with so much on the line in this close election, we want to make sure every voice is here – and no one’s voice is cancelled out due to a technicality. Experience with voter protection work in PA a plus for these calls.
