Two great new resources just released from Nonprofit VOTE that all nonprofits will want to review in preparation for getting out the vote this election season:
- "Serving Democracy: Nonprofits Promote Voter Engagement in 2012" (online, PDF) profiles the growing role of nonprofit service providers in mobilizing their communities to vote. It describes the rationale for it, the research behind it, and how it's expanding this year. It's a call for the entire nonprofit sector to do more in these final days, and in the cycles to come.
- In the same issue of The Nonprofit Quarterly, Nonprofit VOTE Board Chair and Massachusetts Providers' Council President/CEO Michael Weekes is featured in a practical and timely piece called "Five Things Your Nonprofit Should Do Between Now and Election Day" (online).
Read up, Network faithful. Nothing more important in the next few weeks than getting out the vote.
