National Homeless/Low Income Voter Registration Week 9/24-9/30!

NLIHC has joined together with the National Coalition for the Homeless, the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council to sponsor National Homeless and Low Income Voter Registration Week September 24-30.

It’s more than setting voter registration forms on the front desk. Our Voterization plan takes you through all of the steps you need to implement a campaign to integrate registration, education, mobilization, and voter protection without overtaxing your staff or resources, and while staying within legal guidelines for nonprofits. Start by printing out the plan, and then use other resources here to determine your next steps. 

Our Voterization plan presents a menu of activities for your group to consider. Your organization may or may not be able to undertake a majority of the suggested activities; plan according to available resources. If this is your first voter engagement project, remember to think long-term—it’s usually best to start small and build your project over several election cycles. 

In 2004, more than 550 affordable housing groups across the country registered and mobilized thousands of underrepresented people. In 2006, advocates are set to build on these efforts. 

For assistance with your 2006 Voterization project at any point, please contact Kim Schaffer at 202-662-1530 x232, or at kim@nlihc.org. Thank you for joining us!
