Election Day is 7 Days Away

Election Day is 7 Days Away

Make a Plan to Vote!

It's never too early to start planning how and where you'll vote on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Workers' rights are on the ballot. Anti-worker candidates are fighting tooth and nail to take control of the House and Senate so they can erode workers' rights, defund the NLRB, and take away OSHA's already limited enforcement powers. But you can make a difference!

  • Make a plan to vote.
  • Sign up to volunteer for a phone-banking shift to talk to union siblings about pro-worker candidates in their districts (click here).
  • Educate yourself on the candidates! The AFL-CIO's Legislative Scorecard is a good place to start.
  • Know the issues on the ballot. Ballotpedia's Sample Ballot Tool shows you everything from candidates to ballot measures to referendums you'll see on Nov. 8.

Election Day is Less Than a Month Away!

And so much is at stake. Anti-worker politicians are fighting tooth and nail to retake Congress, but working people are pushing back at the ballot box.

Make sure you're registered to vote before your state's deadline by visiting vote.org's registration deadline database today. 

Wondering how to help in the meantime? We're mobilizing members across the U.S. to talk with union siblings about pro-worker candidates in their districts.

Sign up for a phone-banking shift here to help us build the pro-worker majority we need in Washington.
