2012 Get Out the Vote!

Our Faith Our Vote

Less than a week to go until Election Day! The goal of Our Faith Our Vote is to have involved congregations 100% registered and 100% voting.  Help ensure that all the voices in your congregation are heard! Here are some ideas to help get out the vote for your congregation and community:

Ways to engage: Get out the vote in your congregation!

With the rise of restrictive voting legislation, people may not vote because they aren’t sure what identification they will need at the polls, or they feel it will be too much of a hassle.

  • Print out your state’s voter information card and share it with your congregation and community. This helps to ensure that people know what they need to bring before they get to the polls!

Every vote is important, but even small obstacles can get in the way of someone casting their ballot. Support the members of your congregation:

  • Organize rides to the polls for the members of your congregation.
  • Ask members of your youth group to offer childcare to parents who need it in order to get to the polls.

Remind your friends, neighbors, family members, and congregations to vote on November 6th.  Let them know that voting is one of the best ways to make our voices heard.

  • Phone bank the night before the election. Set up a list of volunteers who will take sections of the church directory and pledge to call that section on the night of November 5th reminding families to vote.

You can find more ideas on our GOTV page. Most importantly, if you have any questions about voting or about what you’re seeing at your polling place, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

Thank you for all your hard work. Please be in touch with any questions and to share your photos and stories.
