It’s National Homeless and Low-Income Voter Registration Week, an event sponsored by the The National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) during each presidential election since 1992.
NCH is a national network of people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, and others committed to a single mission: To prevent and end homelessness while ensuring individuals’ immediate needs are met and their civil rights protected.
To complement their registration efforts in 2012, NCH has updated their voter registration manual, You Don’t Need a Home to Vote, to help clarify rules around ballot access for individuals currently experiencing homelessness.
Housing status does not dictate registration status. Make sure members of your community currently experiencing homelessness know their rights and are registered ahead of your state deadline!
