2022 Volunteer Briefing Update

We’re still absolutely blown away by the incredible turnout for our 2022 VoteRiders Volunteer Briefing! It was so energizing and motivating to see returning and new volunteers alike show up in a BIG way to kick off our year-long volunteer programming.

Together, we know that we’re ready to make a difference in the BIG election year ahead!

Want a morale-boosting refresher of last week’s event? You’re in luck! We posted the full recording on YouTube. 

Enjoy it all over again or for the first time – and then share with a friend! You can also check out the slides from the event and a summary of remarks from VoteRiders Founder and Board Chair, Kathleen Unger.

Next up, let’s keep the momentum and enthusiasm for democracy going by taking action with VoteRiders right now! Here’s how:

Texts for Texas

Tuesday, February 1 and Thursday, February 17, both at 7 p.m. ET (6 ET / 4 PT).

Join us for our first text-bank events of 2022, which will deliver critical ID information and assistance to the Texas voters most likely to be disenfranchised by the state’s new voter ID laws ahead of the state’s primary election on March 1 – just one short month away!

Voter ID Assistance Virtual Training

Wednesday, February 23 at 7 p.m. ET (6 CT / 4 PT)

Join VoteRiders’ National Voter ID Assistance Director, Pam Pearson, for a one-hour training on how you can help voters get ID, including those who have requested assistance through our partners or reached out to us via our national Helpline/Chatbot. Both virtual and/or in-person opportunities are available.

Georgia Letter-Writing Parties

Thursday, March 3 and Thursday March 17, both at 7 p.m. ET (6 CT / 4 PT)

Join VoteRiders for virtual letter-writing parties ahead of Georgia’s 2022 primary election in May! You can help ensure that every Georgian has the information and ID they need to cast a ballot that counts.

Roll Call:  Helpline/Chatbot Volunteers!

Help VoteRiders respond to voters who contact us for ID help via our Helpline or Chatbot. You will be trained to answer simple questions and connect folks with additional support if they need it. Sign up now to be alerted ASAP when we begin training for this important opportunity in the spring. We’re especially in search of Spanish-speaking volunteers, but welcome any and all volunteers for this crucial role!

Wikipedia Volunteers Wanted!

Do you love research? Are you detail-oriented and tech-savvy? Sign up to help make sure that VoteRiders’ Wiki page is updated with factual and reliably sourced information. We’ll provide the training; can you give us the time? Wikipedians of all experience levels are needed.

As always, if you have any questions about any of our volunteer opportunities, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We simply cannot do this work without incredible volunteers like you, and can’t wait to see everything we accomplish together this year.
