  • 4 people are interested
Image_202207250541

Care for the Homeless’ hosts voter registration drives every year at several different locations. Our goal is to engage people with the lived experience in this civic process and empower them to participate in choosing who represents them and their interests. There are some limitations to doing these events in person, so this year we are planning to host a few drives at our women’s shelters. We are looking for two individuals to go to these sites to conduct outreach and help consumers register to vote. You will be paired with our client advocates.

What we are looking for in volunteers: (approximately 10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.)

  • A person with the willingness to approach consumers to register to vote
  • Set up the table, registration forms, incentives
  • Will need to log in who has signed up to vote
  • Will need to hand registration forms to the site contact
  • Spanish-speaking volunteers would be very helpful

We will provide you with all necessary supplies and will hold a virtual training to get you familiar with the registration processes. We are happy to answer any information/questions you might have. We look forward to working with you!
