You have many ways to cast your ballot in the 2020 Elections
Lose your mail-in ballot? Miss the October 27 deadline to apply for vote-by-mail? You still have time to take part in the 2020 elections, but as we get closer to November 3, it’s crucial that you make a plan to vote.
If you want to use your mail-in-ballot, do not mail it now; it might not make it back by Election Day. Instead, bring your ballot directly to a drop-off location, or vote in person. You can find your nearest vote centers, polling places, and drop-off locations at https://www.vote.org/dropbox-locator/.
This year, one of those locations is the Writers Guild Theater. Starting today, October 30, the Writers Guild Theater at 135 S. Doheny Drive in Beverly Hills will be operating as an LA County Vote Center. The lobby is expressly set up for voting in accordance with public health and safety guidelines established by the state and county, and will remain open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day through November 2, and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, November 3. Please wear a mask, or one will be provided to you.
In addition to hosting a series of timely events (including Tuesday’s panel with Congresswoman Katie Porter), WGAW PAC has created a list of resources to help voters make a plan and cast their ballots. WGAW PAC supports the candidates who support writers’ interests. Visit us online to find the PAC’s 2020 candidate endorsements and our positions on California Propositions 16 and 22.
We don’t need to tell you that the 2020 election is critical. Let’s all follow Congresswoman Porter’s advice to writers in the final days of this election: “Call voters. Talk with other Americans. When you talk with Americans about voting and about this country, about the future, you will learn something about yourself, about how they think, about democracy … The time you give of yourself is a really, really important part of democracy. It’s the most priceless thing you can give.”
