How to vote in the 2020 election: Make your game plan now for November 3

The 2020 election is underway, and the Philadelphia Eagles are committed to helping you and every other eligible citizen cast a vote. The Eagles teamed up with several nonprofit organizations to make sure you're registered and ready. Players, coaches, and team staff participated in voter education and registration sessions. The Eagles' offices will be closed on Election Day to allow team employees to volunteer as poll workers.
