THE RIGHT TO VOTE: a Powerful Message


BPW is committed to sharing information about voting and encouraging our members to exercise their hard-won right. As part of your right to vote, we feel it is also your responsibility to consider each candidates’ human rights and ERA position as you complete your ballot.

Your voice & your vote matters.

Exercising your right to vote is one of the most important actions we as citizens can take. We know that voting, especially in these times, has a lot of moving parts, so we’ve put together a collection of resources to help you on your voting journey.

Use these resources to help you get started:

Take action:

  • Make sure you are registered to vote, that you develop a plan to vote, and then show up at the polls.
  • Go Social! Share that you voted with your social network. Be sure to tag @nfbpwc on Twitter or Instagram so we can see and share your posts too!
