Our Goal

We Can Vote is calling on all states and voting territories to develop clear election plans that protect our democracy while also preserving public health. Policymakers, and election administrators can act decisively to do the following:

  • Provide mail ballot options to all eligible voters, including the ability to request ballots online in a secure and equitable manner;
  • Preserve in-person voting options in November that:
    • Ensure sufficient hours and locations to prevent long lines or large crowds
    • Ensure enough in-person options on tribal lands and in other locations with limited mail access
    • Use best practices from public health officials to have healthy polling sites
  • Engage with major employers, colleges, and media so that any shifts in election administration serve voters in local communities, and so local communities can assist by volunteering to help by being poll workers for America's largest civic event;
  • Create rules and protocols through administrative and legislative action so that all eligible Americans can vote in November's election.

These simple steps can help ensure that eligible voters can access their ballots while minimizing the risks of this virus. These steps will allow communities to come together and support hard-working election officials who ensure that America's democracy is healthy and strong.
