About this training

Before anybody can vote, they must be registered. Sounds simple enough, but every county has different rules for helping voters get registered--not to mention different forms and requirements.

"Voter Registration 101" will teach you the basics of registering members of your community to vote—and show you how to avoid some common missteps. It's also a great resource for volunteer leaders and campaign staffers looking to train novice grassroots activists.

After watching the video, be sure to download the accompanying toolkit. These materials were created with the intent of deepening the learning experience by providing essential, comprehensive information. You'll find more in-depth instruction about voter registration, how to do it, and why it's effedctive. We've compiled a library of resources to give you everything you need to become, or train others on how to, become expertly register voters.
