Checklist for Election Day 2018
All month long:
- Plan a mass March to the Polls event for the two weeks of Early Voting and Election Day. Start to identify folks who may need help getting to the polls.
- Plan for block walking, phone banks and member-to-member Get Out the Vote pitches. Remember to mobilize the people who have signed Vote Education First pledge cards.
- Start reminding members in your local who are not registered to vote to get registered; TSTA can send you a list of your members and their registration status. The site register2vote.org is an easy way to get your members registered!
Last day to register is Tuesday, Oct. 9
- Keep up the drive to build your Get Out the Vote capacity and volunteer lists by gathering VEF pledge cards.
- Early Voting begins Monday, Oct. 22
- Now’s the time to get your members out to vote! Hold one or more March to the Polls events, where members go to the polls together to Vote Education First.
Last day to Early Vote is Friday, Nov. 2
Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6
- Remember to thank your volunteers for their election efforts. You now have a cadre of engaged and motivated members to support your local’s leadership!
