It’s never too early to share information about how individuals can be ready to vote in the New Jersey primary election on June 8. Local and state elections are critical but often have less publicity and lower turnout than midterm and presidential elections. Your organization can help spread the word. 

The following templates are meant to help you and your nonprofit begin to engage your staff, volunteers, members, clients, and community as potential voters by explaining how they can be ready to vote well ahead of Election Day. The templates also provide tangible steps for them to get involved in the democratic process.
