The new Facebook The Voting Information Center will give millions of people accurate information about voting, while also giving them the tools they need to register and make their voices heard.

The goal is to help register 4 million voters this year using Facebook, Instagram and Messenger, so they can hold our leaders accountable. This goal is double the estimated 2 million people they helped register in both 2018 and 2016.

With COVID-19 forcing many states to make changes to voting, 62% of potential voters said they believe people will need more information on how to vote this year than they needed in previous elections.

The Voting Information Center will give people information about registering to vote, or requesting an absentee or mail-in ballot. People will also be able to see local election alerts from their officials about changes to the voting process.
