Election 2016: Take Action with TWU

Voting

The General Election is Nov. 8, 2016 — be prepared!

Election 2016 is a critical battle for working people. From the presidential contest all the way down the ballot, TWU is here to educate our members on the issues that matter most to working people.

Check back here often for ways to stay involved, opportunities to volunteer, and news from the campaigns. Democracy is not a spectator sport -- take action and vote!

TWU is proud to endorse former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for President. Hillary Clinton has come a long way on her journey of fighting for us -- which is why we're proud to stand with her in the fight to protect working Americans. Find out more about TWU's endorsement.

Your vote in the presidential election has a critical and direct effect on your life, your job, and your family, because our next President will fill at least one vacancy on the Supreme Court.  Donald Trump has pledged to fill the court with justices who support Right to Work laws, meaning a Trump presidency will quite literally wipe unions off the map.

Rise above the rhetoric, and stand with the candidates that truly stand with working people.

TWU State Conferences have pulled together a voter registration and general election schedule below. As dates are finalized, we will update this chart. If your state isn’t listed, visit the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. Download an election flier to share with your co-workers.

And don't forget to share our voter education videos, Real American Voter, A Vote for Me, and Back to Election Day on social media!
