Project Description

How can we help people vote to protect our lives and our environment?

In times of crisis, it is important that all voters have the tools they need to successfully participate in elections. And yet too many voters still face major obstacles to voting, especially our youth, workers, and people of color.

This guide suggests simple actions we can take to help people register and cast their votes: from joining phone and text banks to supporting voter outreach groups and vote-by-mail programs.

Helping people vote can:

  • Give citizens a voice

  • Engage voters to shape their future

  • Elect responsible leaders

  • Support sensible policies

  • Hold politicians accountable
