It's Time to Mobilize for the Midterms

One of my favorite sayings is, "There's always another election around the corner...". Indeed, here we are in another election year and it's time to get going. Midterm Mobilization is underway at U.S. Vote Foundation and Overseas Vote.

Congressional Primary Elections are coming up in all states. You have the opportunity to choose your congressional candidates for the next General Election. A full third, 34 seats, of the U.S. Senate and all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives will be up for re-election.

Our government is a system of checks and balances. The power in our country is shared between three branches of government, executive, judicial and legislative. Many members of the federal level legislative branch, Congress, are up for reelection this year.

Congress has tremendous power to act as a check in the balance to the other branches of government. As the legislative branch, Congress makes laws and maintains oversight on other branches of government. The balance of power in the legislative branch will decide much of the outcome of the second half of our 46th presidential term.

So… Let’s Mobilize for the Midterms. Register. Request Your Ballot. Right here on the US Vote site.

Your voice is your vote - and your vote will be heard!

U.S. Vote Foundation Releases 2020 Election Day Voter Experience Study and Policy Perspective

Voters’ High Satisfaction with their Voting Experience Contrasts Sharply with their Sentiments about Election Integrity and the US Electoral System

February 23, 2021, WASHINGTON D.C. – U.S. Vote Foundation (US Vote) and Overseas Vote published two documents: 1) the 2020 Election Day Voter Experience Study (the Study); and 2) a Policy Perspective: Reflections on the US Vote 2020 Election Day Voter Experience Study and the For The People Act.

The Study’s results – based on a survey of 15,495 voters – showcase the overwhelming success of the overall election process and the reforms of 2020 that were implemented as a result of the pandemic. That success, which led to the highest voter turnout in modern times, took place despite the myriad obstacles voters faced in the primaries and the General Election.

The resulting turnout and positive voter sentiment captured by the Study highlight the need to solidify these reforms as permanent and to continue the non-partisan efforts of US Vote to expand voter access.

“We are concerned about what appears to be concerted efforts in some states to reduce ballot access. It flies in the face of logic that the most successful election our country has ever seen would motivate actions to make voting more difficult. We will not ignore these efforts, and neither will US voters,” stated US Vote Chairman, Michael Steele.

Voters in 21 States Can Register and Vote on Election Day

U.S. Vote Foundation Calls on Local and State Media to Broadcast Election Day Registration and Voting Option

WASHINGTON, D.C. November 2, 2020 – U.S. Vote Foundation today released a comprehensive list of the 21 states where unregistered voters can still exercise their right to vote in tomorrow’s election. This includes swing states and others where close Senate and state races are underway. An estimated 13 million unregistered voters live in these states where on-site registration is available, and their participation could change the dynamic of the election.

Unregistered voters in eligible states can go to their polling place, clerk’s office, or other site designated by election officials to both register and vote on Election Day. Consult US Vote’s Election Day Registration and Voting chart for details.
