What Else Can I Do?
EFFECTIVE, BUT EASY, ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE ON YOUR OWN NOW!
Helping register voters is proven to be the most effective way to get people to turn out on Election Day:
- The WNDC Educational Foundation has developed a user-friendly voting toolkit, www.yourvoicematters.vote, compiling information on the most common voting questions, and the most useful tools to engage people in this year’s important elections. Please use, share, and promote this free resource with the people in your life.
- Send an email to your networks urging them to check their registration status through Vote.org. This organization helps people register and follows up by texting reminders as Election Day gets closer.
- Send an email or text to the young people in your life (13-17 year olds) encouraging them to take the Vote.org pledge to register. They’ll be asked for their first name, birth date, and phone number, and Vote.org will text them on their 18th birthday to help them register to vote.
- Send letters to unregistered voters, urging them to register and vote. Vote Forward will send you a research-tested letter template as well as addresses of likely Democrats in key districts. You can do this on your own or with your household (though you have to pay for printing and postage).
Engage in Virtual Activism
With social media and the internet in the palm of our hands, it’s now easier than ever before to take action from the comfort of your home:
- Learn how to text bank to help “TOTV” (text out the vote). The DNC offers text banking trainings. Once you’ve gotten trained, you can sign up for a text banking event on Mobilize. Texting is quick, easy, and effective!
- Not up for texting? Try phone banking! Phone banking is another quick and effective way to engage with a lot of voters in a short amount of time. Sign up for an upcoming phone bank on Mobilize.
- Use your voice to advocate for the passage of Democratic legislation and Biden-Harris Administration policies. Follow @WNDC_1922 on Twitter to join in on the conversations and help amplify important political messages.
- Combat disinformation on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Use sources such as the Washington Post Fact Checker to help curb the spread of false information.
