This is it. This is the one we’ve waited for. Election Day. This means if you haven’t voted, you need to make a plan and execute it.
If you have already voted, you can make a difference by volunteering to help get other people out to vote. That could be having personal conversations with your family and friends—bonus points if they’re in battleground states—or finding an organized GOTV activity to join.
Defeating Republicans will require all of us to get plugged in to GOTV efforts. On Mobilize, hundreds of Democratic campaigns are recruiting volunteers for all sorts of get-out-the-vote activities. Just click here, and search via zip code to find an event nearest you, and sign up to volunteer.
If you or anyone you know need help finding out where to vote, what you need to bring with you, and more, you can contact the Election Protection hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (and use that website to find Spanish, Asian languages, and Arabic hotline numbers). If you or anyone you know have an absentee ballot that wasn’t mailed in time for you to mail it back, in many states you can bring it with you on Election Day, surrender it, and vote in person—or in some cases vote without doing this as long as you haven’t sent in a mail ballot. Voting America is another one-stop shop for finding out your voting options.
Not registered? You may be able to register and vote on Election Day, depending where you live:
You can register to vote on Election Day in the following states: AK, CA, CO, CT, HI, ID, IL, IA, ME, MD, MI, MN, MT, NV, NH, RI, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY + Washington, DC.

Sign up with the Biden-Harris campaign to make phone calls to swing state voters from the comfort of your own home, no matter where you live. All you need is a personal computer, a quiet place in your home where you can make phone calls, and a desire to kick Donald Trump out of office.
And while winning this thing beyond the margin of Trump’s efforts to undermine or overturn it is the first priority, we have to be ready for a fight to make every vote count and make sure the results hold. If Trump attempts to stop the vote counting, we need to take to the streets. The Protect the Results coalition has been preparing for this by organizing hundreds of post-election events across the country. Click here to find, and RSVP for, the Count Every Vote rally near you.
This is it. Leave it all on the road.
