Election Day is just weeks away and your voter engagement efforts can have an enormous impact on turnout. Use the ideas below to engage your community and ensure everyone participates on November 6th!
  1. Participate in National Voter Registration Day on September 25thand join thousands of nonprofits across the country as we register our communities to vote. It can be as simple as registering your staff or publicizing the voter registration deadline.
  2. Support voting and order a free “Vote November 6” kit–it includes a poster, button, stickers, and a list of sample activities for nonprofits. Use the materials to spark conversations about the election and increase turnout.
  3. Educate voters on their early voting options. Help voters request an absentee ballot or find an early voting location. Get more information about absentee and early voting in your state.
  4. Register for our October 11th web eventNonprofits Get Out the Vote! Countdown to Election Day–for nonprofit-specific get-out-the-vote strategies and a discussion with sector leaders.
