Mobilizing Voters

Each week we will feature a new tool, an effective strategy or thought-provoking article on how to mobilize and excite voters!

Help us grow our list of local mobilization efforts by sharing a resource. Community-based organizing is one of the best things we can do to exercise our voting power, help grow our political leadership and empower our neighbors.

Check out: TurboVote

TurboVote is a message based app that makes voting easy. You get text and email reminders about registration deadlines and upcoming elections when you sign up. (VRL members, it’s easy and we love it!) TurboVote keeps track of your elections, local and national. And if you need to get registered, update your voter registration, or request an absentee ballot, they’ll get you all the forms and information you need, when you need them.

Want to know more about this civic technology? Watch co-founder Kathryn Peters share her vision for TurboVote.
