It's time for #VoteByMail

Mothers Out Front feels strongly that if there are more people at the table with a variety of perspectives, we can make better decisions. This year, exercising our right to vote is one of the most important things we can do to make sure our communities will benefit by the best possible decisions.

Vote by Mail makes perfect sense during a pandemic when no citizen should feel they have to risk their lives to cast their ballot.

The Brennan Center for Justice notes:

  • 23% of ballots were cast by mail in 2016,
  • 26% of ballots were cast by mail in 2018.
  • Five states — Hawaii, Utah, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado — will run all-mail elections this year.
  • In 28 states and the District of Columbia, any voter has the right to request a mail ballot without excuse in November. 
  • There were only 143 cases of fraud using mailed ballots over the last 20 years.

It's time to raise our voices so all American citizens can exercise their right to vote.
