HISPANAS ORGANIZED FOR POLITICAL EQUALITY'S OFFICIAL RESOURCE GUIDE FOR THE 2020 ELECTIONS AND 2020 CENSUS
2020 is a crucial year for Latinas across the country. It is not only the year we will be VOTING for President and all State Representatives, but it also marks the launch of the 2020 CENSUS. Elected officials need to hear the voices of Latinas in every election and we must be counted during the census so that our communities get the allocation of funds they deserve. Join HOPE this 2020, by making sure that LATINAS VOTES COUNT in the election and census. Stay informed and up to date with the latest about 2020 through HOPE's official resource guide.
We must be counted in Census 2020 to ensure our communities receive their fair share of political representation and Federal resources. Join HOPE in sharing the resources below from organizations and partners working to make sure that on April 1, 2020 we are all counted!
We must participate in the 2020 Primary and General elections to ensure that the needs of our communities are prioritized in the legislative process. We have to mobilize to elect representatives that understand the unique needs of minority communities, and who will use their platform to fight for equity and social change. Join HOPE in sharing the resources below from organizations and partners working to make sure our voices are heard in this election!
On May 8th, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order allowing all registered voters in the state to receive a mail-in ballot for November’s election. Below are some simple steps you can take to make sure your ballot counts.
Sign the envelope.
Your signature will be compared to the one you provided when you registered. If you don't recall what that looks like, make it look like the one on your license or ID. If your ballot is not signed, it will not be counted.
Get it in on time.
Ballots postmarked after election day or received more than three days after election day will not be counted.
Make sure it is not damaged.
If your ballot is damaged it will not be counted. You can always stop by a vote center to get a new ballot but you must bring your old one to exchange.
I pledge to take at least ONE new Latina voter to the polls with me on November 3, 2020. I also pledge to fill out my census card to be counted and make my voice heard in the 2020 election.
