Voter registration is more important than ever this year. With DMVs across the country shuttered because of COVID-19, and field-based registration drives on hold, millions of voter registrations are no longer being collected or updated. At the same time, in order to be able to take advantage of some of the options being rolled out in the states to reduce the spread of COVID-19 – such as vote by mail – eligible voters need to be registered at their current addresses well ahead of Election Day.
During this webinar we will review the impact the pandemic is having on voter registration rates, the laws and opportunities that vary across states around voter registration, and some quick, actionable tips for promoting voter registration digitally now. Our guest speakers have experience in the field working with voters and will share how they are pivoting their strategies in light of the pandemic response.
The recording and slides for this webinar will be sent one week after the webinar airs.
