The upcoming election matters enormously to making progress on climate change, but the coronavirus crisis can make voting more of a challenge as the recent elections in Georgia revealed. That’s why it’s so important that all voters have the right to vote safely by mail. No one should have to risk their health to participate in democracy.
This week, urge your state’s governor to enact vote-by-mail with prepaid postage. Many states have already had success with mail-in elections, including Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Utah, California, and Hawaii. You can find out more information about mail-in voting in your state here.
