On March 22,
AFT endorsed Joe Biden for U.S. President after more than a
year of member engagement on the endorsement process — with more
than 300,000 AFT members nationwide participating in candidate
events, town halls, polls, regional conferences and other efforts
— new membership polls show strong support for Biden.
In November, CFT members will join voters around the country to
cast their ballots for the next president of the United States.
While we know that every election day is an important one, the
upcoming election will represent an historic turning point
for our country.
We not only have the opportunity to elect a president who
understands the value of public education, but one who will stand
up for the rights of working people.
Deadline to request a Vote-By-Mail ballot — October 27
In case you do not receive one, download the VBM application from the Secretary of State, return the application included with the sample ballot mailed to you, or obtain one from your county Registrar of Voters.

As we knew it would be, the lead-up to the 2020 Presidential
Election is both an exciting and overwhelming time for voters. We
are bombarded with articles, polls, social media, and headlines
about the candidates.
Amid all the hype, it isn’t often that CFT members get the
opportunity to see the presidential candidates in person and hear
their perspectives on the issues we think about every day.
