Nonprofits, Nonpartisanship & Misinformation: What Nonprofits Can (and Should) Say about the Election

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

Rapid changes to election procedures, including the expansion of voting by mail, changes to voter ID laws, and consolidated or moved polling places, risk discouraging or disenfranchising voters who are unsure of how to navigate a new voting process. Misinformation and disinformation regarding changes and election integrity can exacerbate mistrust in the system. As trusted messengers, nonprofits are well positioned to challenge misinformation about voting and elections, even when candidates are the source of that inaccurate information.

Join us for our one-hour webinar in which we discuss what it means to stay nonpartisan, and address how your organization can work to steer clear of misinformation. Guest speaker David Levitt, Principal at Adler & Colvin, speaks regularly on nonprofit and tax exemption legal matters and will be present to share his expertise and answer your questions.

Digital Voter Engagement Tools During the COVID Pandemic

Organizer: Nonprofit Vote

Almost two thirds of all voter registrations happen in person, but for months businesses, social services, and nonprofits have moved interactions with the people we serve online as we continue with social distancing measures. Some estimates predict that over 2 million new registrations will be lost each month that DMVs, social service offices, and campaign or field activities are shut down or significantly limited. If your organization looking for digital tools to find unregistered voters, help voters with registration, and educate voters about the voting process and their ballot to fill the gap, this webinar is for you.

Nonprofit VOTE is bringing together leading civic tech tools in a virtual "resource fair" so you can find the solutions you need for engaging voters. We're taking the effort out of researching each tool and the awkwardness out of the traditional vendor tables at a conference. Attend the webinar to see their demos and then use the Q&A box to get rapid answers to your questions about the platforms.

COVID-19 & Policy Options for Expanding Mail-in Ballots this November

Organizer: Nonprofit VOTE

COVID-19 is having a profound impact on our democracy, with many states postponing primary elections and changing rules regarding mail-in absentee voting, online voter registration, and polling places to accommodate federal guidelines around social distancing. A secure and accessible election is in the best interest of all Americans, and the CARES Act includes $400 million in emergency funds for states to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus for the 2020 federal election cycle. With less than 7 months to plan and implement sweeping changes, states will need to take swift action to protect voters, election staff, and election integrity. Now is the time to make sure your state is ready for the November election. Learn how you can be an informed and effective advocate for state-level policy change during this one-hour webinar.
