2020 FAQ

  • Why should I care about 2020?

    Over the past few months, in the biggest crisis of our lifetimes, we’ve come to see what the stakes of this election really are. This election is literally a matter of life and death.

    We’ve now seen the importance of a president who cares about people other than himself. The importance of a competent government and people working in that government who take it seriously. We’ve also seen too clearly a lot of the underlying problems—from economic inequality to health care to racial disparities—that not only has this president failed to take on, he’s made worse.

  • OK I know I’ll vote, but why do I need to do anything else?

    You know the stakes are clear. People are hurting as a result of catastrophic leadership. The good news is we have a huge opportunity on our hands! We have the chance to change it—all of us can play a role in not just ending a failed presidency, but building a more equitable and sustainable future. HOW FUN!

    In the 2018 midterms, one of the main reasons we saw such a huge change is because so many new voters turned out. And those people didn't just wake up on Election Day and decide to go to the polls. They turned out because people like you got in touch with them, told them how important the election was, and persuaded them to register and vote. When you vote, you cast one vote—when you volunteer, you can influence many more to do the same. This year, you probably won’t be knocking on doors, but for every one of you reading this right now, there’s 10 other people who aren’t paying as close attention to news and politics, who may not even know if they’re registered, and we can make sure the people in our lives are ready to go this November.

    Did we mention it’s fun? You’ll feel good about yourself. Productive. This is a frustrating, exhausting time, and you can either sit on your couch and stew about it, or you can find ways to get involved and make a difference from that very same couch.

  • I live in a very red or very blue state, does my vote matter?

    There are very few places in this country where there won't be a race where you can make a real difference. Later this year, we’ll have your whole ballot available so you can find out everything you’ll be voting on.

    And it’s not just your vote that matters: You can talk to people in other states! We’ve made it easy through Adopt a State, a remote mobilization program that gives you the ability, no matter where you live, to support the work of organizers, volunteers, and candidates in the six key battleground states that will be most important to winning on Election Day.

  • As a Democratic voter, I didn't support Joe Biden in the primary. Why should I support him now?

    Your vote is your voice—your chance to declare what kind of future you want for this country. So, while you might not agree entirely with Joe Biden, this election ultimately isn’t about Joe Biden—it’s about you. It's about us, and doing our best to elect a president who will ultimately pursue the kinds of policies we need to build a fairer, more just country.

    Today, on nearly every single issue, the differences between the two major parties are larger than they’ve ever been. From the economy to climate change to health care, Joe Biden is running on the most progressive platform of any Democratic nominee in history.

    So make a choice for yourself! What path do you want this country to be on? If you don’t participate in this election, it’s very likely that politics will continue exactly as it’s been going for the last several years. Which, yikes. If you do participate, you can help deliver tangible progress on the issues that matter most to you.

    And should Joe Biden win on November 3, then the work continues. Put pressure on him every single day. Keep fighting. The struggle doesn't end. But if you don't do everything you can to help win this election, you won't have any power after that.

  • What’s going to happen?

    Up to you! It’s in your hands. Stop reading polls. Take that worry and anxiety and use it.

    The outcome of this election is just as much on us as it is on the Democratic candidate. We have a responsibility to affect the outcome here, by organizing, by finding new ways to talk to voters in the middle of a pandemic. That is a responsibility that all of us have. The whole country is on the line. It is on each one of us to do more than we ever have before. Vote Save America is here to give you the tools to do that.

    Let’s go!
