ICYMI: New Vote-By-Mail Features On IWillVote.com Rolled Out Across The Battlegrounds

Yesterday, Biden for President and the Democratic National Committee announced a range of new features on IWillVote.com, the DNC’s voter participation website. Check out what voters are reading about the new site across the battlegrounds:

Associated Press: Democrats try to streamline mail balloting for their voters. “Democrats are rolling out an expanded online portal that allows people to register to vote and request a mail ballot in their state and even helps digitize their signature on their paperwork.”

  • “‘The stakes for our country have never been higher, and we’re making sure Americans have all the information they need in order to make their plan to vote and send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House,’ Democratic National Committee [chair] Tom Perez said in a statement released Monday.”

  • “Their redesigned website provides different methods of registering to vote and requesting absentee ballots tailored to voters’ home states. It allows voters to either register online, request ballots online or have the materials sent through the mail, with a postage-paid return envelope included to submit the ballot to the local elections office.”

  • “The site even allows voters in certain states to provide signatures on their online ballot applications. These signatures will often go on file with elections offices to be checked against voters’ signatures on the actual absentee ballot to verify their identity.”

NNPA Newswire: Biden Campaign & DNC Announce New Vote-By-Mail Features on IWillVote.com. “On Monday, Sept. 14, the Joe Biden for President campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) have announced new features on IWillVote.com – the DNC’s voter participation website – that will help voters easily request and return their ballot by mail.”

  • “‘However voters choose to cast their ballots, these updates to the IWillVote.com site provide the tools necessary to exercise their right to participate in our democracy and ensure our community’s voice is heard in this critical election,’ said DNC National Press Secretary Brandon Gassaway. ‘Our lives and our livelihoods are at stake this November, and we’re doing everything in our power to ensure every voter has all the information they need to make a plan to vote and send Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House,’ Gassaway declared.”

In Colorado:

Colorado Politics: Biden campaign, Democrats roll out enhanced voter participation website. “Joe Biden’s presidential campaign and national Democrats are rolling out upgrades Monday to the party’s voter participation website, billed as a one-stop shop for every aspect of casting a ballot, campaign officials tell Colorado Politics. The IWillVote.com site — a longstanding portal for voters to check whether they’re registered, find polling places and determine voting deadlines — is being outfitted with a number of new features, a Biden campaign spokeswoman said, including the ability to request a ballot online, by email or by printing out a request that can then be mailed to election officials.”

  • “‘The new suite of features on IWillVote.com will be crucial in helping Coloradans update their registration, get accurate information about registration and voting deadlines, ballot drop box locations in their area and so much more,’ Ernie Apreza, the Biden campaign’s Colorado state director, told Colorado Politics. He added that the site ‘will help ensure that Coloradans will turn out in full force this November.’”

In Florida:

Infobae: La campaña de Joe Biden lanza una herramienta en línea para impulsar el voto por correo. “Hoy, la campaña Biden para Presidente y el Comité Nacional Demócrata (DNC por sus siglas en inglés) han anunciado nuevas funciones de la página VoyaVotar.com, y han elegido a Infobae para informar al respecto en Florida. VoyaVotar.com es la página oficial en español de participación electoral del DNC. A partir de hoy, los electores que así lo deseen podrán entrar a este sitio a solicitar su boleta por correo, además de poder buscar información sobre el proceso de votación con datos de cada estado en particular.”

  • “‘Independientemente de cómo el elector decida emitir su voto, la página web actualizada de VoyaVotar.com facilita que los estadounidenses ejerzan su derecho a participar en nuestra democracia y garantizar que su voz sea escuchada en esta elección crítica,’ decía Tom Pérez, Presidente del DNC.”

In Georgia:

Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “Joe Biden’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee are beefing up the website to help Georgia voters more easily request mail-in ballots. The IWillVote.com website previously allowed users to check or update their registration and find voting locations. Now it will offer state and county-specific options such as how to request a ballot online; how to print a mail-in form; and how to request a prepaid return envelope.”

In New Hampshire:

Manchester Ink Link: Democrats launch new voting information website. “The New Hampshire Democratic Party, in coordination with the Democratic National Committee, announced a new website that they believe can help more than 5,000 Manchester voters across party affiliations expected to vote by mail for this November’s election. The website, IWillVote.com, provides information on registering to vote, checking voter registration, voting by mail and requirements for voting in person in New Hampshire and in other states. The website is also available in Spanish at VoyaVotar.com.”

In Pennsylvania:

Penn Capital-Star: “Late last week, Politico reported that more Democrats than Republicans are requesting mail-in ballots in such key battleground states as Pennsylvania. And that cohort includes voters who didn’t participate in the 2016 election. To leverage that advantage, we can exclusively report this morning that the Democratic National Committee and Joe Biden’s presidential campaign are beefing up the party’s online portal, IWillVote.com, to make it even easier for people to request a ballot.”

  • “‘Voters have more options than ever to cast their ballots this year. IWillVote.com is a one-stop shop for voters to get information on flexible ways they can vote, and directly submit ballot requests to their local county Board of Elections,’ Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, said in a statement obtained by the Capital-Star. ‘Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can’t do it alone. We are building an unprecedented effort to ensure that voters can make a plan now to vote.’”
