Can we get some democracy back here, please?
Today, September 22, marks National Voter Registration Day, making it the perfect time to gear up for the November election. Courtesy of the folks over at Amazon, we even have a plan for you. It helps to have those in times of national crisis, like a pandemic.
Sorry, we digress.
First things first: register to vote. Visit Vote.org for instructions on how to register, request a mail-in ballot or learn voter registration deadlines for your state. It’s fast, easy, and can be done online.
Second, share that link with your friends on social media. Encourage them to register to vote in preparation for November as well.
Third, join the party. In honor of National Voter Registration Day, Amazon will host watch parties and offer free access to its new documentary All In: The Fight for Democracy. The movie follows former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as she chronicles the ongoing issue of voter suppression across the nation, the shady ways political parties can impose barriers to disenfranchise certain groups of Americans, and how best to fight back against this infection on our republic. Twitter will also feature a special watch party hosted by Abrams and Lin-Manuel Miranda starting at 4:00pm PT.
So get registered, share and stream. Get motivated. Vote!
