About Benjamin Franklin and the Franklin Project

Benjamin Franklin was a Founding Father of the United States of America. Among many other things, he was the first United States Postmaster General.

If he were alive today, he would probably be concerned that the United States Postal Service may not be able to both send you a ballot AND return it to your local voting authorities in time for that vote to be counted this election day. As such, he would likely encourage you to:

  • Support the United States Postal Service
  • Learn how to register to vote, request a mail-in ballot, and know where to drop that ballot off in-personget started now!

Among other things, the Franklin Project seeks to enable every person in the United States of America to better exercise their Constitutional right to vote by making it easy to navigate the voter registration, ballot request, and ballot drop-off process. Get started here.
