A Kit for Community Groups to Ignite Voter Participation

This year may be one of the closest and most fiercely contested federal elections in recent history. This presents both an opportunity and a challenge for community organizations and local leaders working in communities with traditionally low rates of political participation. In response, Samara has created the Vote PopUp kit to foster interest in the upcoming election and demystify the voting process for first-time and infrequent voters.
