Making the Election Connection [video]

Making the Election Connection from ALA Washington on Vimeo.

The campaign season is in full swing and it’s time to think about making a difference at the polls.  Believe it or not, library leaders can legally and ethically encourage engagement in the elections. In this session we look at 10 specific steps library leaders can take to mobilize library supporters, including voter registration drives, learning about candidates, attending and hosting forums and working the polls.   We also provide details on what non-profit staff, boards and volunteers are allowed to do under existing rules. Now is the time to capture the increased interest in the political process to promote civic participation and enhance your library’s presence.
