The people at Vote Together have spent the past couple of years studying ways to increase voter turnout. One way they’ve found to get people to the polls is to change the culture around voting. By making the experience more communal and celebratory, they’re finding voter engagement improves. I spoke with Vote Together’s Director Angie Jean-Marie who shared with me why this cause became so important to her.
When more of us vote, we get closer to the democracy upon which America was founded. Vote Together is non-partisan and non-profit. They’ll help you find voting celebrations in your community or help you plan one of your own! They’ve even got party kits. It’s time to use Election Day to connect with each other, and support one another moving forward.
