Take Action: Record a video for GLAAD about why this election is important to you!

We are only 64 days out from the November Election, and it can not be overstated how much is at stake on November 3, both locally and nationally. 

There are so many ways to take action to help get people to the polls to support LGBTQ equality, from registering your friends and family to vote, to spending your free time volunteering, to speaking out about what’s at stake in this election. 

We want to hear from you about how you’re taking action from the days from now until November 3. Here are some examples of videos from voters speaking to what’s is at risk in this election and why it is so important to cast your vote on every level. 

It's easy to record your own video, by following the script below and describing why voting is so important to you personally, especially this year for the LGBTQ community.
