Voter Registration Event
Local elections are coming!* We want to mobilize our community to use their greatest power - their right to vote. We will have voter registration forms, wifi and a tablet for people to check their registration status, and we’ll throw in a Forever Stamp for anyone who registers by mail.IMPORTANT DATES:
- Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - Registration Deadline (register online!)
- Deadline to Request an Absentee Ballot: Received by Fri Nov 1, 2019 4:00PM
- Deadline to Return Completed Absentee Ballot: Received by Tue Nov 5, 2019
- ELECTION: Tuesday, November 5, 2019!
We’ll also have a list of actions that anyone can do to stay engaged in their community and energized in American democracy. VOTE is a verb - let’s do this.
If you are looking for a tangible way to encourage voter engagement we highly recommend Postcards to Voters. Register as a volunteer, get an address list, and send out postcards to total strangers with upcoming elections. It’s one of the things Virginia has done to feel like she’s helping every day.
*Did you know that only 65.6% of eligible voters voted in the 2018 Massachusetts State Elections! That's above the national average but there's still room to grow!
