The League of Women Voters field support has gone digital! LWVNJ launched a digital platform called OutreachCircle, where people can easily stay connected to League activity and conduct civic education outreach efforts to different communities all from one platform! As we all know, there is so much work to get done, from educating first-time voters to reminding our community members to create their voting plan to working with election officials to instill confidence in our election process. Still, we can’t do this work alone. We need the full force of our all our partners in New Jersey to get this critical work done.
Click here for instructions on how to start using OutreachCircle.
PLEASE NOTE: While there are c3 nonpartisan activities on OutreachCircle, LWVNJ also uses this platform for some of our c4 advocacy actions. Not all OutreachCircle opportunities are appropriate for other organizations. Please evaluate before sharing.
The League of Women Voters is a proud partner with Project 555: Youth Voter Engagement. They are a student-led, nonpartisan, virtual voter registration and education project focusing on High School seniors. The goal of this initiative is to reach out to every public high school (509 in total) and 46 of the largest private high schools in New Jersey before the October 13th voter registration deadline and maintain contact with these students through the November election via social media, phone calls and a number of other digital platforms. If you have a connection to a public or private high school that would like to provide voter education to students, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
National Vote Early Day is October 24th! Use this sign up form to get your League registered!
While Vote Early Day is October 24th, we want to ensure that October is full of many different activities and messages to capitalize on the momentum around early voting nationwide to get out the vote. Below are some ideas to build up momentum to get out the vote throughout the early voting season.
Host a Bring Your Own Ballot (BYOB) Virtual Party! Bring Your Own Ballot (BYOB) virtual parties are a great way to make sure that no mistakes are made completing your ballot, so your vote is counted. You can use VOTE411.ORG to find all you need to know about voting in your community and share that information with your friends and neighbors at the party! Here is a very simple toolkit to help you organize your BYOB party. We want to recognize Washington DC League President, Kathy Chiron, for sharing this great idea with us!
Check out our BYOB toolkit here!
Review this Voter Suppression Toolkit: The Fight for the Right to Vote to contextualize your efforts in an understanding of historic voter suppression and systemic oppression. You can also view this recorded training our friends at the Leadership Conference hosted with us earlier this year!
