“Why I’m Voting” video creation event:

In preparation for National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday Sep 22nd, come to create your own 15-30 second video that you can share on your own social media platforms to encourage your friends to get registered to vote and get PUMPED about casting their ballot on Election Day. We’ll go over some key “movie making” tips to guarantee successful likes and follows, and provide some sample scripts, videos, and posting language that will help you mobilize your friends and family to participate in the 2020 election. This is a completely virtual volunteer event, and we prioritize being non-partisan in order to maximize involvement in democracy – regardless of background, ideology, or party affiliation.
