It's Time to Vote

Let’s Harness Our Power to Max Out the Vote!

Election Day, November 3, is right around the corner. Planned Parenthood Votes supporters have been the driving force behind We Decide 2020: These activists have reached millions of voters by phone, mail, text, and online.

Our energy is already leading to real political power at the top of the ticket and in down-ballot races.

After four long years of Trump, people are coming out in droves to vote early and send a decisive message to this president.  As of Oct. 27, more than 66 million voters across the country have cast their ballots, and they’re voting for candidates who will protect reproductive rights and expand health care coverage.

It's Clear:

When we stand together, we elect leaders who will protect our health and rights.

But we can’t stop now. 

Let’s Turn Out in Record Numbers

It’s our turn to prove that nothing, not even the COVID-19 pandemic or Trump’s attempted election-season sabotage, will stand in the way of our democratic commitment to voting. 

Ready to roll?

We need your help to energize every voter who cares about sexual and reproductive health and rights. Help us make every vote count.

Read on to learn how to accelerate our momentum!


3 Steps to Make Your Voice Heard

Your vote is your voice — it represents your values, your community, and the opportunities you want in life. Here’s how to use that voice to mobilize for reproductive rights champions.

1. Vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris — and Learn Your Down-Ballot Candidates

If you support reproductive rights champions but don’t know who they are by name, you’ve come to the right place.

Learn about what rights your state and federal candidates support in our voter guide.


2. Make a Plan

Do you know exactly how you’re voting? Or what your voting options are in your state? Find your state and make a plan to vote: plannedparenthoodaction.org/elections/make-plan-to-vote

Be sure to bring a mask and expect to wait — so bring a snack, too! Also, save the Election Protection hotline number in your phone: 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683) to report any problem you encounter with the voting process.

3. Vote Early

There’s less than one week left to vote this election. This chart shows when early voting ends in your state: vote.org/early-voting-calendar.

If you do vote early, try to track your ballot and make sure it was received.
