Registering to vote is the first step toward becoming an active and engaged voter, and is a gateway to other forms of civic participation. Nonprofits are trusted and respected community institutions with frequent face-to-face contact with clients and constituents, allowing them to reach and register individuals who are often overlooked by campaigns and political parties. Whether you want to simply promote voter registration with a poster or incorporate it into your services, these resources can provide ideas and guidance on how to make it work.
