When making a plan to vote…
- Early voting is now available for ALL elections, not just general elections in November.
- Weekend early voting is now a thing. Check your municipality for the dates and details.
- Early voting now starts six days earlier, beginning on October 22, 2022.
- No-excuse absentee voting is now available for ALL elections, not just general elections in November.
- The deadline for applying for an absentee ballot has been pushed back one day. It’s now Tuesday, November 1.

- Eligible incarcerated voters are now able to vote by mail.
Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.
