  1. In order to make sure all our residents can vote. I put up signs reminding them to fill out a new voter registration form if they have moved since they last voted, and I leave a stack in the lounge. But the biggest help is we volunteer our space to host the electrion polls. It’s very convienient for residents to simply come down to vote, and we welcome our neighbors as well. Let residents know if they missed the deadline for mailing in their absentee vote, they can take the form to their polls and vote there.

    Thank you for all your great tips. I always learn something.
