Promoting Registration and Voting in Your Organization

This process simply ensures all members of your organization are practicing what they preach. All your members should be registered.

Reaching Out to the Community by Phone

Making phone calls to the registered voters in your community requires diligence and consistency. Members of your organization can divide these duties by focusing on calling 10 – 20 voters each. See Sample Script Below:

Volunteer: Good day, Mr/Ms___________, My name is ___________ and I am calling on behalf of (state name of organization), and we are working to ensure all registered voters are aware of the upcoming elections. We see that you are a registered voter and would like to know if you or any of your friends need transportation to and from the voting location. Election Day is November 3rd. Thank you and have a great day.

Reaching Out Door to Door

All registered voters’ contact information is public record; including their home addresses. Therefore, your team can visit these voters by knocking on doors and sharing the same basic information as contained in the script.
