2) Post a Flyer

Take VoterIDHelp.org off of the web and into the real world to reach voters who otherwise wouldn't turn to tech to seek out their state's laws. Check with your local library, community center, or senior center for permission to post one of our downloadable, printer-ready flyers.

 

3) Host an Information Session

Take the lead in your community by using information from VoterIDHelp.org to host an information session on voter ID requirements in your state. Libraries, community centers, senior centers, and places of worship are all great venues to host an information session at little or no cost. Need an idea of what to cover? Download our sample agenda and customize it using information from your state!

 

4) Volunteer to Help Others Get ID

Live in a state that offers free voter IDs to those who need them? Volunteer to help others gather the documents they'll need to secure an ID, or to drive them to and from the office where ID is issued. Use VoterIDHelp.org to learn the requirements for obtaining a free voter ID in your state. To reach out to those who need ID, start by hosting an information session or by contacting your local library, community center, senior center, or place of worship to let them know you are available to help.

 

5) Invite VoterIDHelp.org to Speak at Your Event

Contact us to arrange for a speaker at your central North Carolina event! We will do our best to accommodate requests to present on the topic of North Carolina voter ID requirements and accessibility for older and disabled voters. If we cannot personally appear, we may be able to recommend a knowledgeable person in your area who can. Be sure to check out our flyers and sample information session agenda for help hosting an event on your own!
