Workers First Vote Union

YOUR VOTE IS ESSENTIAL

America faces crises on three critical fronts: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism.

And too many of America's working families are suffering needlessly because of ineffectual leaders and their reckless policies.

Elections have consequences.

Working people need safe jobs, economic security and freedom from systemic racism. We need to vote for candidates who share our values, and vote out those who don't.

Make your voice heard this fall.

Together, we can truly make America great and build a nation that works for all working people.

Support Candidates Who Support Working Families

"Wall Street and the CEOs didn't build this country. The middle class did. And the middle class was built by unions."

—Vice President Joe Biden

With the state and federal preliminary injunctions in place, chances are dwindling that the voter ID requirement will be carried out in any 2020 election. But the Court of Appeals panel disagreed, saying the evidence shows otherwise, pointing in part to rapid passage of the December 2018 law and the absence of certain public assistance IDs on the list of qualifying cards.
