Support Strong Early Voting Plans in Your County

Given the importance  and nature of 2020 decision-making on your county’s Early Voting plans, it’s vital to have Early Voting advocates like you year-round and ready to take action for your communities.

Note: Most county’s have determined their plans for the 2020 Primary. The State Board of Elections will take up any county’s non-unanimous (also known as “alternative”) 2020 Primary Early Voting plans on December 20, 2019. 

With the passage of Session Law 2019-239, during the 17-day one-stop period, counties are required to offer Early Voting on weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and  between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. on the final Saturday prior to Election Day. There are plenty of opportunities to fight for more sites and weekend hours in 2020!

4 Ways You Can Help Fight for Early Voting in 2020:

# 1 – Look up your County Board of Elections and call or visit their website for meeting times.
# 2 – Print our Early Voting Advocacy Packet, full of resources to learn the best ways to influence the hours and locations your county offers voters during Early Voting and a paper report form for documenting what happens.

# 3 – Review prior Early Voting plans for your county and use it as a guide to prepare to advocate for similar (or better) plans in 2020.

# 4 – Want to quickly share out information about Early Voting discussions and planning from your County Board of Elections meeting? Fill out our EV Advocacy Report Form.
