Learn how to ‘VoteLibraries 2020 – Thinking About Elections and Libraries Without Being Partisan’ on next week’s FREE NCompass Live webinar on Wednesday, November 20, 10:00am-11:00am CT.
Libraries have a natural non-partisan role to encourage and support civic engagements like voter registration and issue-awareness. For example, EveryLibrary is a sponsoring organization and steering committee member for National Voter Registration Day and is the library coordinating partner for National Disability Voter Registration Week each year. Next year, they plan to relaunch #VoteLibraries2020 to help put non-partisan library issues on the local, state, and federal landscape. In this conversation, EveryLibrary Executive Director John Chrastka will talk about these voter-facing public education campaigns and other activities that they have planned.
