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.
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 visited social studies classrooms at Paly by Zoom, and spoke to all of the Gunn seniors during Gunn Together Time on Zoom. In the fall of 2021 and spring of 2022, we visited classrooms at Paly, Gunn, Kehillah, Pinewood, and Middle College to register students to vote and educate them about voting. This work requires multiple volunteers!
Voter Education Resource Team
Mission: To produce Pros & Cons events, candidates’ forums, the Voter’s Guide, and Voter’s Edge. We are also working with high school students to produce educational videos about voting. In the spring and fall of 2022, the Voter Education team will be very busy preparing for the midterm election. New volunteers are welcomed!
Beyond Palo Alto Team
Mission: To engage local League members in get-out-the-vote (GOTV) campaigns for elections beyond Palo Alto's borders.
Executive Committee: Oversee all Voter Services (VS) activities and report to LWVPA Board.
