Every year is an election year - but not everyone knows it!New American Pathways’ dedication to local voters doesn't end in Presidential election cycles! They want to ensure those we serve have a voice in all elections - and you can help.
Throughout October and into November, they're partnering with Center for Pan Asian Community Services and Asian Americans Advancing Justice to host non-partisan Get out the Vote (GOTV) phone banks and door-to-door canvasses to encourage local voters to turn out for their elections.
This November, voters return to the polls for critical local elections for mayors and city council candidates in dozens of cities across the Metro Atlanta area. These elections decide who makes important local decisions on schools, zoning, and hundreds of other issues for years to come, yet local elections sometimes have a turnout as low as 7 percent.
Volunteers for GOTV phone banks and/or canvasses do not have to be previously trained, as our partners will provide a short training before each event. We do ask that you RSVP to any event you'd like to attend to Stephanie Jackson Ali.
