We’ve been working on something big...
I'll keep it short and sweet, because we've got a big announcement to go along with the leaderboard this week.
The Voter Engagement Toolkit
Today is a big day. TurboVote has been working all summer on a Voter Engagement Toolkit and the first version is now ready for you to take a look! This toolkit is your resource for how TurboVote can best be implemented on campus and how we can get the most students to sign up to become lifelong voters.
The resource is available in both online and PDF formats - with the PDF format being more robust in this first iteration. We recommend using the PDF version, but you can also access the online version in case you’re on your smartphone or just need a quick reference. However you choose to view it, we hope the case studies and information are wildly helpful.
It is important to us that we continue improving this document, so please let us know if there is information that's unclear, missing, or unnecessary. If you have input, we’re reachable anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would like to thank all of the partners who have shared information with us specifically for the toolkit, but also generally over the years. This is a community of passionate, talented, altruistic people and you are all amazing in our eyes. Thank you!
Now, on to the leaderboards. Each week, I’ll continue to update you on our national leaderboards for total sign-ups and sign-ups as a percentage of total students at an institution.
