Vote Early, A New Civic Holiday! 

Wednesday, October 20, 11 a.m. | View the recording here

Vote Early Day was founded by MTV as a new civic holiday focused on helping every voter know how, where, and when they can vote early. Launched in the midst of a global pandemic, Vote Early Day became a critical resource to ensure no voter had to choose between their health and casting their ballot. In its first celebration, Vote Early Day attracted 134 premier partners and 2,700 general partners from every state in the nation. Over 3,000,000 voters cast their ballots on Vote Early Day alone.

On Wednesday, October 20 learn more about how to Get Out the Vote early before the November 2 election. We task you to vote by or before Saturday, October 23, on National Vote Early Day. Special guests from Committee of Seventy and Campus Vote Project will help us celebrate and share important resources for us to Get Out the Vote!
