Celebrating Vote Early Day

Vote Early Day was founded this year to celebrate and promote voting early in-person and voting by mail. In the midst of a pandemic, this has become more important than ever. Voting by mail can allow people to cast a ballot without as much risk of infection. Voting early in person can help people avoid lines and come in contact with less people. 

This year, Vote Early Day will take place on Saturday, October 24th, but nonprofits like yours can share information all week long to help amplify the benefits of voting early.

RSVP NOW for our October 20 “7 Things You Can Do Between Now and Election Day” webinar!

We not only encourage you to read and copy the information from the templates, we are asking you to do it! You can give us credit by tagging us in social media posts on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

Dear [Name of Recipient], 

Saturday, October 24th is Vote Early Day but you don’t have to wait until then to celebrate! Vote Early Day is a movement of nonprofits, businesses, election administrators, and creatives working to ensure all Americans know their options to vote early. Celebrate Vote Early Day by casting your ballot, making sure you’re ready to vote, and reminding others to make their voices heard.

Are you ready to vote? Great! Mail-in or drop off your ballot, or cast your vote at an early voting site to make sure your community is represented in the general election. You can share you voted with friends using #VoteEarly and #VoteReady.

Are you getting prepared to vote? Awesome! Find your personal voting information by going to  vote411.org and typing in your address.

Are you helping others vote? Amazing! Share information with them about the benefits of voting early like avoiding long lines and how they can find vital information about voting at canivote.org.

Thank you for being a voter or sharing voting information with others! 

Sincerely, 

[Insert Organization Signature]
