Voter Services News
The Voter Services team leaned into the end of the election cycle this year. We had meaningful conversations with people and gave them information about ballot initiatives. Some of us used Voter-to-Voter to help track our progress in making personal connections with others about voting. Some put on their shoes and visited their neighbors to talk about voting. Many of us spent more than 13 hours on election day helping our community vote.
