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 Co-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 2021 and spring of 2022, we plan to visit social studies classrooms in person 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. In the Spring and Fall of 2022, 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; coordinate volunteers to register voters at new citizens' ceremonies (when they return to happening in person); and work on voter registration efforts in the jails.
Beyond Palo Alto Team
Mission: To engage League members in get-out-the-vote post-card and letter writing relating to elections beyond Palo Alto's borders.
Executive Committee: Oversee all Voter Services (VS) activities and report to LWVPA Board.
