If you haven’t voted yet, whether by mail or early in person, tomorrow is your last chance! Early voting numbers are up this year because Americans know this is a critical election. We need to shift the trajectory of American politics, and we need to start putting people first. Voting YES for a Fair Tax will do that. The Fair Tax will raise revenue to invest in our schools and communities, and does so by asking millionaires and billionaires to pay more. It also brings fairness to our tax system. Under the current, unfair flat tax, those who make the least end up paying DOUBLE in taxes as a share of their income. The Fair Tax will shift that burden to those who can afford it – those making over $250,000. And it will NOT tax your retirement. In addition to our support for the Fair Tax and the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris ticket, you can find IFT-endorsed candidates from your area on our website. If you have a mail-in ballot, it must be postmarked by November 3 or you can drop it off at an official ballot drop box by the time polls close – 7PM on November 3. Have questions? Find answers in this vote-by-mail FAQ from the State Board of Elections. If you are voting in person tomorrow, please be safe. Remember your mask, stay a safe distance from others, and wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after voting. Find your polling place here.
