In the coming months, NLIHC will offer a series of webinars to train advocates and service providers on how to carry out non-partisan voter registration, voter education, and get-out-the-vote activities to engage their residents and clients in the democratic process. The first webinar in the series, “Understanding and Overcoming the Challenges of Voter Registration,” will be presented on Wednesday, February 17, at 2:00 PM ET.
The webinar will provide background information on the importance of tenant voting and discuss the rules governing voter registration efforts of 501(c)(3) organizations. The webinar will review the NLIHC Voterization plan and provide tips and best practices for voter registration drives. The session will also explore some of the more challenging aspects of recent efforts to suppress voter turnout and the various resources available to local voter registration campaigns.
With a high stakes 2016 presidential election, a strong turnout from low income renters is essential to making affordable housing a high priority.
