Bernie 2020!

 

Watch the video above to see Bernie Sanders’ presidential announcement speech, released on February 19th, 2019.

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 our website 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. Donate today!

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!

Don't want the latest in Bernie news?

No spam, ever. See our Privacy Policy.

Get hyped!

These are a few of the best campaign ads ever made. Some of them were even created by grassroots groups!

And finally…

I’m not sure what that was, but I know I love it.
