Souls to the Polls
“It is a Christian obligation to vote, and more than that, it is the church’s responsibility to help get souls to the polls.” -Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
Now that you have your Voting Plan, wondering how else you can help? See some suggestions below:
Get on the list to drive people to the polls
Not everyone has an easy means of transportation to get to their polling location. Are you willing to offer transportation with those who are in need of a ride to the polls? The Cincinnati NAACP is organizing a system to connect volunteers with those who need transportation to the polls for early voting and/or Election Day. If you're interested in being a driver, please contact the Cincinnati NAACP at 513-281-1900 or email [email protected].
Be a Poll Worker
In the 2018 election, 58% of poll workers were 61 or older. In the last presidential election, there were over 917,000 poll workers. While age is not the only determining factor of risk for COVID-19, there is great concern that we will have a shortage of poll workers for the 2020 election. This trend is not just due to COVID-19, however, as there has been a growing shortage of poll workers in the past several elections. If you are able and comfortable, consider signing up to become a poll worker this year! https://www.ohiosos.gov/elections/poll-workers/signup/
