Ready, Set, Register: Nonprofit Voter Registration
Thursday August 2nd, 2:00-3:00pm Eastern
Registering to vote is the first step to becoming an active and engaged voter. In 2008, nine out of ten registered voters cast a ballot; among those who did not vote, many reported that they encountered problems with their registration. Join us for more on how your nonprofit can ensure that your clients and constituents are registered to vote and able to participate in this year’s election! We’ll help you create a voter registration plan, develop strategies and tactics for registering community members, ensure you remain nonpartisan, and more.
