Mobilizing Voters Webinar

Housing and the ElectionsThe final webinar in NLIHC’s 2016 Voterization series is “Mobilization: Getting Out the Vote.” The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 15 at 2:00pm ET and will provide attendees with the essential elements of an effective Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort. Topics will include effective methods of reminding voters of polling locations and times, coordinating ride services to polling locations, preparing for accessibility concerns, and assigning key roles and responsibilities to volunteers on Election Day. The webinar will also discuss best practices for early and absentee voting.

Registering and educating voters will make a difference only if voters actually turn out to the polls. A strong voter turnout by low income renters in the high-stakes 2016 election is essential to making affordable housing a high priority for policy makers. Learn how to make that happen; closed captioning will be provided. There will be ample time for attendees to share thoughts and experiences or to ask questions of the presenters.
