Get-Out-The-Vote Tools You Can Use

07 November 2016 Written by  

It’s the final stretch to Election Day 2016. Please share any of our nonpartisan get-out-the-vote (GOTV) tools on your company’s social media and networks, adapting to suit your audience. These tools are designed will help overcome a few key challenges. Utah's partial shift to vote-by-mail has left us with fewer polling places. Less than half of ballots have been mailed back. The state of Utah and SL County are not publicizing Election-Day Voter Registration, an option in 8 counties. So we all need to get the word out that so many citizens can register to vote and vote on Election Day.
