Get Out The Vote Resources for Advocates

By Rachel L. West
Advocacy & Community Outreach Consultant

It has been a while since I’ve done a post on resources. Since the election is less than 70 days away I want to focus this article on resources that advocates can use with regards to getting out the vote. If you have a GOTV resource that is not included in the article, please share them in the commenting section.

Info for Nonprofits

As I’ve written about in the past, nonprofits can and should play a role in the electoral process. But their are certain rules nonprofits must adhere. It is important to be aware of federal and state laws regarding nonprofit election activities.

Working on a Campaign

This is an introduction to a series of videos on GOTV.  The series was created by the New Organizing Institute. There are a total of 5 videos.

Back in April I hosted a #MacroSW Twitter Chat on Get Out The Vote. You can find the transcript as well as a list to each states Board of Elections here.

NASW’s PACE put together a page where you can locate info about working on a campaign as well as volunteering with your local chapters GOTV efforts. You can find it at this link
