Voting by absentee ballot should feel just as exciting and important as going to the polls on Election Day. Absentee ballots have literally decided elections and in 2016 more than 40% of ballots were cast early.

That’s why on October 9, 2018, ran the first-ever National Absentee Ballot Day to celebrate and encourage voters who make their voice heard by absentee ballot. Held annually on the second Tuesday of October, voters across the country will mail their ballots and celebrate with their communities on this day.
