Voter Registration Deadlines

Less Than One Month – Ensure Your Ballot is Counted on Nov. 3rd

Vote Early!

Register to Vote

As the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on aviation workers, many of us have been forced to relocate to new addresses and even different states. In most states, you must be registered to vote several weeks before the election on November 3rd. In 39 states, you can register to vote online in two minutes. If you have not voted in recent elections, you may need to re-register. Double-check your registration status. Register to vote now!

Vote Early

The best way for Flight Attendants to ensure that our ballots are counted is to vote early. The nature of our job, whether it is a scheduled layover or an unexpected delay, may prevent us from voting in person on November 3rd. Early voting in person is also a great way to avoid long lines on Election Day!

Early Voting in Your State

Your Future

Elections matter. The ballot you cast next month will affect all three branches of our federal government. The representatives we elect also appoint numerous individuals to other offices where they make decisions that impact our daily lives. For example, the Secretary of Transportation will decide how long we must continue to wait for the implementation of our 10-hour minimum rest. Have your Representatives stood in the way of extending the Payroll Support Program?

While the Presidential election may make the biggest headlines, issues such as unemployment insurance and accessibility to workers’ compensation are decided at the state level. These down-ballot races are equally important.

APFA members must vote because the decisions that are made in Washington directly affect our profession, the strength of our Union, and the lives of hardworking Americans across the country. This Election is our opportunity for the next 2, 4, and 6 years to bring Representatives to Washington that represent us.
