In order for our democracy to thrive, we need to move forward and unify. SCSJ would like to thank the National Task Force on Election Crises for these quotes, and our Design Intern, Emma Daniel, for creating this video.
On the final day of early voting in North Carolina, SCSJ’s Communications Director, Tazeen Dhanani, encourages voters to cast their ballots if they haven’t already. More than four million voters have already cast their votes in NC, among the 80+ million votes in the country! Every vote counts.
SCSJ’s Design Intern and NC State University student, Emma Daniel, created a powerful video for the #CounselorsNotCops campaign.
This November 3rd, Americans will vote in 51 separate elections: one in each state, plus Washington, DC. Local election administrators and poll workers work for you to make sure your voice counts in this election.
This moment gives us the chance to begin rebuilding into a perfect Union for us all. Every single vote leads us toward a future where all of us can thrive. It’s time to get this right. Vote.
Learn about the life cycle of your ballot from the moment you submit it in this brief animated video.
With the record-breaking number of absentee ballots sent in this year, counting every ballot will take time, and results will likely not be available on Election Night. American democracy includes all our voices. And American democracy is worth the wait. #CountEveryVote
