2020 GOTV Weekend Events

This Saturday, October 31st, and Sunday, November 1st, are crucial days where volunteers across the nation will be working to Get Out the Vote!

Below is a collection of different events taking place across the Commonwealth this weekend–events that are open to all members (Hatch-friendly) are specifically indicated. If you’re not sure if you’re covered under the Hatch Act, please consult this page. For a complete list of all PA AFL-CIO-sponsored events leading up to the election, please view this PDF.
