Homeless Voting for 2012

Homeless Voting

We had a really nice meeting with the homeless providers to talk about getting homeless people registered and ready to vote.  To that end, we have also updated our website with the above logo on many pages.  This will allow you to click on the logo to go to our voting section of our website.   We have updated the materials on that page to reflect the new rules and laws passed that restrict low income access to voting.  Most of the materials on the site are updated for 2014.  We also have a blog which list updated information and upcoming events to encourage voting.   We want to help the homeless social service providers to register and encourage voter participation.  Contact NEOCH if you need any help with homeless registration and voting. 

We have to thank the County Office of Homeless Services for requiring each provider receiving public money to put together a Voting Plan for their residents.  We are one of the only communities in the Country that prioritizes homeless voting as part of the shelters.  This is so helpful and forces all staff working with homeless people to think about voting activities.  We helped around 1,000 homeless people register and vote in the 2012 election.
