Our team works in partnership with many other organizations to engage voters ahead of every election, ensuring they are prepared to vote and know their options for voting. We are actively involved in get out the vote (GOTV) efforts that include phone and text banking as well as in person engagement as social distancing permits. We remind voters of key deadlines, like applying for their ballot, to ensure their voice is heard and vote is counted.
In the 2021 August mayoral and city council primaries and the November 2021 general election our team will focus on combating the typical “dip” in voter participation in non-presidential (and non-congressional) election years. Through virtual phone and text banks, our virtual canvassers will target voters who were first time or infrequent voters in 2020 with the goal of creating lifelong voters, not one-time or occasional voters only in important presidential elections.
