Civic Holidays

HOW TO CELEBRATE

You can celebrate all of the Civic Holidays through a variety of activities designed to mobilize voters in your community. While your specific message may change for each holiday, many celebration models are similar throughout! 

Plan an event!

Each holiday offers plenty of opportunities to host fun and informative in-person or online events to help your community prepare for upcoming elections! Over the years, partners have hosted everything from town halls to speaker panels, block parties, letter-writing gatherings, phone-banking efforts, and more. As long as you have a few trained volunteers and a creative way to increase attendance (having a prominent speaker, providing food, or hosting musical performances), these can be entertaining ways to reach voters and get local media attention. Even setting up a table with voting information is a great way to be visible as a trusted resource in the community!

Direct voter contact!

Use the Civic Holidays as an opportunity to connect with voters in your community through nonpartisan door knocks, phone calls, or texting campaigns. Talking directly with voters where they are provides a vital opportunity to ensure they have the tools and knowledge to share their voice in our democracy
