Get Out To Vote

A- A A+

YWCA is on a mission to register 10,000 voters for the 2018 mid-year elections. We believe that change happens at the local level. That’s why we’re working with 200+ YWCAs across 46 states to help build political power in our communities. Want to help? Here’s how to start:

  1. Register to vote! Don’t forget if you had a name change or change of address you must update your registration.
  2. Get your friends and family registered. That friend who just isn’t into politics? Your cousin who just turned 18? Help them see the value in showing up to the polls.
  3. Support your local YWCA in their Get Out The Vote Initiatives. Whether it’s volunteering to plan or participate in a voter registration drive, helping with a candidates forum or with voter education events, or simply lifting up efforts through social media — we can each play a role in empowering our community.
  4. Host your own voter registration drive! Whether it’s at your school, place of worship, office, or a sporting event, it is quick and easy to set up and a great way to make registering easy for people in your community. Print out our signs and pledge cards and get going!
