Volunteer with Voter Services
Help Make Democracy Work!
Join us to get involved in our work to engage with elected officials, empower new voters and to learn about issues that impact your community.
Volunteers make everything we do possible. It's our volunteers who organize our programs, forums, speakers, as well as manage our election activities and register voters.
Voter Services Chairs Kathy Miller and Liz Jensen want to help you mobilize your membership!
The Voter Services team aims to fulfill the League’s mission of strengthening democracy through voter registration, voter education, and voter mobilization.
For the 2020 election cycle, we are hitting the ground running!
We welcome all League members to learn about our activities and find a volunteer opportunity that fits their interest.
Contact Kathy and Liz if you’re interested in being involved in one of these teams and its mission or if you'd just like to pitch in wherever the need is greatest!
Youth Vote Team
Mission: To register, educate, and motivate 100% of eligible Palo Alto teens to become lifelong voters. Our volunteers visit school classrooms to do all three. In the fall of 2020, we hope to visit social studies classrooms by Zoom to register teens to vote.
Voter Education Resource Team
Mission: To produce Pros & Cons events, candidates’ forums, the Voter’s Guide, and Voter’s Edge, as well as to explain the Voters Choice Act to the public and develop new voter education concepts such as active policy reflection. In the fall of 2020, this team will be very busy and new volunteers will be welcomed!
Voter Registrar Liaison Team
Stay up-to-date on voter registration and voter issues and serve as a resource for educating volunteers who are part of other teams/projects. Liaise with the registrar over key registration and voting issues.
Jail Voter Registration Team
Mission: To work collaboratively with County agencies to ensure that inmates in County Jail are able to register to vote and cast a ballot. Most recently, we collaborated with the Santa Clara County Office of Women's Policy, the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters, and the Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women to create this instructional video for use in the jails.
