A comprehensive training manual, updated for 2013, which provides a step-by-step guide to help you develop winning high school voter registration programs and encourage young people to register and vote. The guide comes complete with field-tested tips and a range of planning, training, and outreach tools to help you succeed.
The League of Women Voters Education Fund is initiating efforts to help Leagues become more active in promoting voter registration among new U.S. citizens, especially at naturalization ceremonies. We have created this toolkit to provide relevant information and suggestions to assist those Leagues interested in conducting effective and efficient voter registration at naturalization ceremonies. Thanks to the many League leaders who shared knowledge, resources and materials for the creation of this toolkit.
