Talking about Voting

Conversations make participating easier
Mony and Norma

The Key to Community project is by the community, for the community. We are non-partisan. That means our goal is to help people get enough information to make up their own minds.

Choosing to be an informed voter is a chance to learn new things about what is happening around you. An election is also a chance to learn more about yourself and what you think is important. Here are conversations about voting you can have with your friends and family. These can be grouped together in whatever ways fit your schedule.

If you are completely new to how voting works or want a refresher, you can watch this video featuring team member Zuleeka Mohammed from Santa Clara Reads:

During election season you may be bombarded with lots of paid advertising and political messages. When it feels like too much, just remember to come back to this question:

What do you care about in your community?

Let your answer guide how you look at candidates and propositions. The main point is that YOU are in charge of deciding when to vote and how to vote.

A good place to start is to think about WHY you want to vote. Click here to find out what the Key to Community team members have said about that.
