Another important election year is approaching and we hope you will join us in ensuring everyone's voice is heard.
Several national organizations* are holding a conference call on Wednesday August 6 at 3:00 pm ET to discuss the many ways your organization can get involved with National Homeless & Low Income Voter Registration Week, September 21-27, 2008. Please note the new access code 15392836#.

Since equal access to the right to vote is a crucial part of maintaining a true democracy, nonprofits and service agencies nationwide will dedicate the week toward registering homeless and low-income individuals to vote. For those unable to conduct voter registration drives, the week can also be used to educate community members on the election process.
