It is the right of every registered voter to cast their vote, whether you choose to vote by mail or in person.

Working families deserve a leader who will focus on “we, the people,” not just on the person they see in the mirror. Only Vice President Joe Biden can be that president. I’ve known Joe for 40 years. He loves his family, loves working people and loves our country. His “Made in America” plan will revitalize America's manufacturing in a way Trump never could. Biden doesn’t only have the best plan to beat the virus and help workers recover financially—he is the only candidate for president with a plan at all. And with a Biden administration, we’ll finally pass the PRO Act, allowing workers to join a union freely and fairly.

If you have not completed and returned your ballot yet you still have many options to cast your vote.

The safest way to vote this year is to vote by mail. During the Civil War Americans used the mail to vote, and the post office has been essential to our democracy ever since.
