Statement from the Student Conservation Association on Election Day 2020

Friday, October 16, 2020

So many events this year have been unforeseen and unsettling. However, one of the constants of our democracy is the regular selection, by the people, of government representatives, and SCA urges all Americans to exercise their right to vote on or before Election Day – November 3, 2020.

SCA will close its offices on Election Day to give staff members every opportunity to vote, and we are calling on partners to provide our service members with the scheduling flexibility they need to participate in the upcoming elections.

Should you require them, we offer the following resources including information on how to register to vote, request a mail-in ballot, and volunteer to help make this year’s election safe and accessible:

The right to vote is avowed in our Constitution and protected by five different amendments. Many would argue, however, that voting is more than a right – it is an obligation, a duty of citizenship.

Please fulfill this fundamental responsibility and make your voice heard in this year’s elections.
