Checklist for Election Day 2018

September:

All month long:

  • Plan a mass March to the Polls event for the two weeks of Early Voting and Election Day. Start to identify folks who may need help getting to the polls.
  • Plan for block walking, phone banks and member-to-member Get Out the Vote pitches. Remember to mobilize the people who have signed Vote Education First pledge cards.
  • Start reminding members in your local who are not registered to vote to get registered; TSTA can send you a list of your members and their registration status. The site register2vote.org is an easy way to get your members registered!

October:

Last day to register is Tuesday, Oct. 9

  • Keep up the drive to build your Get Out the Vote capacity and volunteer lists by gathering VEF pledge cards.
  • Early Voting begins Monday, Oct. 22
  • Now’s the time to get your members out to vote! Hold one or more March to the Polls events, where members go to the polls together to Vote Education First.

November:

Last day to Early Vote is Friday, Nov. 2

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6

  • Remember to thank your volunteers for their election efforts. You now have a cadre of engaged and motivated members to support your local’s leadership!
