Secular America Votes
We recognize the importance of voting in our democracy. As a secular movement, we want to do our part to make sure every eligible voter is registered and ready to vote in the upcoming election.

Ready to host a voter registration drive?
Every eligible voter should have a fair and equal opportunity to register to vote and to cast their ballot. Millions of Americans miss the opportunity to vote because they don’t know how to register or they miss their state’s deadline to register.
Through Secular America Votes, we will help your local group or chapter plan and host a voter registration drive, provide you with registration information for your state, mail you voter registration supplies, and connect you with other volunteers in your community.
In a normal election year 75% of voters would register to vote in person, with the coronavirus pandemic halting in-person opportunities to register voters, we must work even harder to register voters this year. But it can be done.
In Person Drives
Consider hosting a drive-thru drive while distributing hand sanitizer and masks to community members. Check out our How to Host a Voter Engagement Drive Guide for detailed advice and best-practices. Then check out SSA Alum Sean Rivera share How to Mobilize Voters Like a Pro! from SSA Con 2020.
Find out more about hosting a virtual drive for in our How to Host a Virtual Voter Registration Drive Guide. Find graphics to promote your drive here.
In addition to utilizing social media to promote virtual registration, you can also host a text-banking drive or email campaign. Check out National Voter Registration Day's webinars on using Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat for registration outreach.
Get Out The Vote on Election Day
Let's show up as a secular community on election day to show we are good without god. On election day sign-up to be a ride-share driver to the polls, volunteer as a poll worker, or support voters waiting in long lines by providing snacks, water, and a place to sit!
Vote early if possible to ensure people that must vote in person on election day have the opportunity to do so!
We'll continue to provide resources and updated information through the election. If you need support with your efforts or have any questions about our materials please email firstname.lastname@example.org
