While the news may be focused on the presidential race this November, communities across the country are also electing state and local officials. Such elections bring with them candidate debates, forums, and other events are prevalent in the summer and fall months to help voters learn more about candidates and their campaigns. Yet, not knowing who is on the ballot is a common reason cited by potential voters for why they didn’t participate in an election. Throughout this webinar we explored creative ways nonprofits are working to bring candidates and voters together despite COVID-19.
Special thanks to GreenRoots Chelsea’s Maria Belen Power and LWV Arlington’s Joan Porte, for discussing how their organizations have shifted to engaging candidates virtually and sharing their experiences first hand!
