Our Approach to Voter Engagement
To get more people out on Election Day, Community Votes builds off the methods voter research says are most effective. Our capacity building increases the confidence of nonprofit staff to implement nonpartisan voter outreach programs.
Our approach is practical, grassroots and cost-effective. We understand many community-based service organizations work directly with citizens who traditionally don’t exercise their right to vote and are uniquely positioned to turn more citizens into voters.
Our services include:
Why Voting Matters
How to Conduct Nonpartisan Voter Activities
Developing a Voter Engagement Plan
Identifying opportunities to collaborate with local advocates and organizers
Providing templates for outreach materials such as I Pledge to Vote Cards
Providing a customized neighborhood voting profiles
Designing a system to track and report on voter registration and turnout
Data and report documenting impact on turnout
