Join NLIHC’s upcoming Our Homes, Our Votes 2020 webinar, “Election Day! Getting Out the Vote,” scheduled for October 15 at 3 pm ET. The webinar will explore the most effective Election Day get-out-the-vote practices such as coordinating rides to the polls, hosting “walk to the polls” groups in low-income housing communities with nearby polling locations, using snacks and music to keeping people in line at busy polling locations, and using Election Day visibility volunteers with signs reminding people to vote. Attendees will learn about effective “knock-and-drag” efforts throughout Election Day for identifying who has not yet voted and sending volunteers to their doors.
