Election Hub Launched To Help People Everywhere Get Out The VoteJanuary 7, 2021
Our nonprofit today launched a new online Election Hub to help ensure that people everywhere have access to the resources needed to fulfill their civic duty to vote in the upcoming election.
Developed in partnership with non-partisan civic organizations, the Election Hub is a one-stop-shop resource to provide individuals with tools to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, find a polling location, contact a local election office and other critical information to empower every eligible voter to participate in the 2020 Election.
“Voting gives individuals a voice in the vital decisions being made about the future of our society,” said Tina Smith, President and CEO of our nonprofit.
“Civic engagement is at the heart of what our organization does, and today, more than ever, engaging people to vote and stay involved is fundamental to solving our most challenging problems and creating strong, equitable and resilient communities. I encourage everyone to participate in the democratic process and have a say in the decisions that affect us all.”
Our nonprofit launched a number of activities throughout 2020 to support civic engagement including supporting the U.S. Census via a “text-to-pledge” platform; training communities on digital organizing and grassroots mobilization; recognizing the 100th anniversary of the women’s right to vote; and registering new voters on National Voter Registration Day.
As the 2020 presidential election draws even closer, efforts to engage voters, particularly communities of color and historically underrepresented populations, in making their voices heard have increased, through a partnership with BET on the first National Black Voter Day.
Our nonprofit is also taking steps to spotlight the important issues that impact America’s communities which candidates should address, help voters create a voting plan, and harness the influence of our organization’s global Brand Ambassadors to encourage all to participate in the democratic process.
