There are a lot of ways to participate in the League. See the Participate page for some very broad ideas. However, we are often asked a very specific question: What does the League need right now? If that's your question, check out the list below.
To volunteer for one of these or just ask some questions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Volunteer" in the subject line. We'll contact you to talk more about it.
Use your experience on Facebook and other social media to raise awareness about the April 6 election: voting dates, candidate information, voting turnout and more! The Voter Registration team is looking for volunteers to post messages on their own social media pages using the League's Grow the Vote collection of graphics. To learn more, send an email to Karen Fresco at email@example.com.
Voting Misinformation Detectives
The Voter Registration team is exploring how LWVCC can address possible misinformation related to voting. An task force has been formed. The group is currently focused on exploring the internet or other media sources for confusions related to voting or elections and suggesting ideas for League products or responses. See their webpage here. The idea is to be positive and proactive, perhaps with written materials or other methods. If you'd like to join the group going forward, send an email to Karen Fresco at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Get Out the Vote in 2022
For the spring 2021 elections (February and April) the Get-Out-The-Vote team distributed door-hanger voting information to more than 3000 households in low-turnout areas They also distributed flyers to local businesses (more than 100). This summer, the team will start planning for 2022 elections. They want to continue the successful on-the-ground door-hanger and business flyer distribution, perhaps expanding the areas covered to include apartments and other locations. They also want to consider "going BIG" with some new projects such as raising funds for bus signs and other very visible public spaces.

Programmer/Web Developers: Update the Candidate Guide for Upcoming Elections
Before every election, LWVCC develops a nonpartisan Candidate Guide. James Manrique, the developer of the guide, could use some help with the next update for the guide. He's looking for someone with experience in web development (Wordpress, CSS, or general programming experience) to assist with expanding the code for the Candidate Guide. If you are interested in either of these opportunities, please contact him by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
