Protecting Election 2020 from Covid-19: Toolkits for Activists Across the Nation

Covid-19 poses an existential threat to our ability to hold a safe and accessible election in November. In these toolkits, we provide the information activists need to conduct targeted advocacy in every state in the country and fight back against that threat.

Voters shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their right to vote. With no end in sight to the Covid-19 pandemic before the November election, we recommend a number of changes to election laws and practices in order to make the election safe and accessible to all, and protect voters from having to make that impossible choice. With these toolkits, you’ll be able to concentrate your efforts where it counts the most in your state to make sure that your upcoming election is Covid-safe.

Each of these toolkits lays out exactly where your state stands, and where it falls short on safe voting policies impacting some of the most critical aspects of our election infrastructure; including voter registration, mail voting, and in-person voting. They will also help you target your advocacy for maximum impact with select resources that you can rely on and helpful information about which authorities have the power to implement the recommended changes.
