Your neighbors need state ID -- and they need it now. The pandemic has made it harder than ever for individuals to navigate the bureaucracy on their own...and it's added new categories of essential activities that are impossible to do without an ID. That's why we need volunteers more than ever!
Important elections are always around the corner -- which is why VoteRiders is a year-round organization. Nationwide, VoteRiders provides voter ID education and assistance to anyone in need. Here in Pinellas County, VoteRiders Tampa Bay helps eligible voters get the ID they need to cast their ballots in person -- one voter at a time. And since ID is necessary for housing, for employment, and for so many other aspects of life, you're making a difference for members of our community well beyond Election Day.
Our local volunteers do the following:
1) Help clients get their state ID or driver's license at the tax collector's office. This is an in-person opportunity, either Wednesday morning in St. Pete or Friday morning in Clearwater. Choose to cover one morning a month or more!
2) Work with clients to obtain the documents they need to get ready for their appointment. This can often be done virtually but may require occasional in-person contact.
Full training is provided, and all expenses are either prepaid or promptly reimbursed.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
