AFT members have a proud history of engaging with elections: volunteering to get out the vote, talking to fellow union members, serving as a delegate to a party’s national convention, running for public office or voting in higher numbers than the general public. The AFT Votes app ensures we can keep up that engagement in a time of social distancing.
