VOTER MOBILIZATION

Are you getting others to the polls?  Even though you may not be a politician or be in an organization that has large-scale voter mobilization efforts, you can still help get out the vote. You can call your friends, family, and co workers and encourage them to vote, and you can use your social media to remind people about deadlines and share important information about voting. No effort is too small when trying to get people to vote. If you reach one person, you have made a difference. It’s on us to make a difference!
