When is the deadline to register? Can I vote by mail without an excuse? Can I still vote in person? NBCNews.com/PlanYourVote has everything you need to know about casting a ballot in the 2020 presidential election. 

August 17, 2020 – As one of the most consequential elections in American history intersects with the COVID-19 pandemic, how you vote is as important as who you’re voting for, and voters need to know that casting a ballot this year requires a plan.  With less than 80 days to go until Election Day, NBC News has launched Plan Your Vote, an interactive tool, which encourages Americans to plan out when and how they will vote this year.

Available at NBCNews.com/PlanYourVote, this state-by-state guide offers visitors a comprehensive place to view all the information they’ll need to know when planning their vote for the 2020 elections, while also taking into account each state’s coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

The tool was built and is powered by the NBC News Data Graphics team, with data and information supplied by the NBC News Decision Desk and politics team, including the most up-to-date, real-time information on laws as they get passed around the country and as decisions are made in pertinent court cases. The geo-targeted site also allows the user to select different states in a dropdown menu and learn information about a state’s mail-in ballot rules, early in-person voting, registration deadlines and more.

NBC News is also launching a robust marketing campaign, produced together with Arts and Letters Creative Co., to support the initiative. Several NBC News and MSNBC anchors and hosts, along with NBCUniversal personalities will encourage Americans to check out the website and plan their vote.
