Millions of Americans go unheard in our elections because they don’t vote. Young people, people of color, and people with lower incomes and education levels have particularly lower rates of voter participation. However, innovative programs have found successful ways to promote engagement among these potential voters. Hear from voting experts and libraries about how your library can deliver nonpartisan information and programs that advance equitable participation in the upcoming 2020 elections and beyond—and why now is a great time to start!
This session is presented by ALA’s Public Policy and Advocacy Office and ALA’s Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services.
