HOW CAN YOU HELP KEEP VOTERS INFORMED?
You have a right to know where candidates stand on the most important issues in your community. Even after multiple contacts from League volunteers across the country, some candidates have not yet answered our questions – which is why we need your help!
We’re asking you to urge your candidates to fill out the voter guide as soon as possible. The more voters who contact candidates, the more likely they are to fill it out. Here’s how you can help:
- Tag the candidate in a tweet.
Sample Tweet: As a voter, I want to hear where my candidates stand on the issues. That’s why I’m calling on @[candidate] to respond to the @VOTE411 voter guide, so voters can be informed before casting our ballot! #LWVVoterGuide
- Send candidates a Facebook message or email them.
Sample Message: Hello! I want to learn about where you stand on the issues in our community. Could you please respond to VOTE411’s voter guide as soon as possible so voters in [INSERT YOUR CITY OR STATE] can be informed before casting our ballots? Thank you.
- Write a letter to the editor asking candidates to fill out VOTE411 voter guides. Public requests encourage candidates to respond to the calls of voters.
This is an opportunity to encourage and persuade candidates to respond, so please be respectful but direct in your messages.
If you or one of the candidates you reach out to have any questions, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for helping us with the voter guide!
