Turn Up Tuesdays to Voters: Make a Plan to Vote Now


The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights and All Voting is Local, with its joint And Still I Vote campaign, will hold a Facebook Live event on Tuesday, September 29 at 5:30 p.m. ET to encourage voters to make a plan to vote ahead of November 3. With a special guest from the Divine Nine, voting advocates will discuss how to request a mail ballot, vote in person during the pandemic, and options to vote early.

This event is part of Turn Up Tuesdays, a weekly national call to action to make sure people are informed and activated to vote in the general election. Turn Up Tuesdays is dedicated to ensuring that the general election is not characterized by the disarray that voters experienced across the country during the primaries in states like Wisconsin and Georgia.

5:30 - 6:00 p.m. EDT

Turn Up Tuesday Facebook Live Event - Everyone should have the option to vote in the way that makes them feel most safe. Guests will discuss how voters can make a plan and the different ways they can exercise their constitutional right to vote.
