Bernie 2020!


Video by Matt Orfalea

Here at VoteForBernie.org, we’re committed to getting voter turnout up and getting Bernie Sanders elected as the 46th President of the United States. We’re working hard to get this resource updated and ready for the 2020¬†election.

First

The first thing you should do is donate to Bernie’s campaign. Bernie raised over $1 million just four hours after it launched, shattering previous records.

Second

Bernie wants to have 1 million active volunteers in all 50 states – help him get there by signing up to volunteer!

Third

Sign up below to get an email when we launch, so you can stay up-to-date on important election news and voting deadlines in your state!
