2020 has been a year like no other, and perhaps the most important day of this year is November 3. The presidential election will decide the direction of the country for years to come, and there are many other important races and issues on the ballot as well. It's important that we all prepare ourselves with the knowledge and resources we need to make informed decisions and have our voices heard.

Blavity has put together the following guide of the important people and issues on the ballot this year, as well as resources on how to vote and what to do if your right to vote is being challenged.
