National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) advocates have encouraged voter engagement for decades by registering people to vote, educating communities on the issues we care about, strengthening and expanding voting rights, and getting out the vote on Election Day. Use the resources below to plan out your efforts to help Get Out the Vote (GOTV) between now and November 5, 2024.

Prepare Yourself to Vote &
to Get Out the Vote (GOTV)

Set your intention

Get inspired by NCJW’s Judaism and Voting Resource as you plan your GOTV work.

Keep it non-partisan

Review what you can and cannot do to GOTV as a 501(c)(3) organization.

Check your registration

Use NCJW’s portal to check your voter registration or register to vote. You can also bring voter registration forms to all Section events and activities (check your state laws to ensure compliance).

Learn the landscape

Educate yourself on both the laws protecting the right to vote and barriers to the ballot box, including accessibility challenges.

Get your voter ID ready

NCJW & VoteRiders partnered on a one-pager with information about Voter IDs.

Consider voting early

Share information with your local section, network, and community about how to vote early, absentee, or by mail in your state

Equip Your Community to Vote & Resources to GOTV

Make a Plan to Vote

Help people in your local section and/or network to make a plan to vote.

Collaborate in your community

Identify and partner with new or existing GOTV efforts in your community. Consider working with local chapters of the League of Women Voters, Common Cause, NAACP, or local houses of worship.

Share your passion for voting

NCJW is partnering with Vote Forward to connect our advocates with potential voters across the country. 

Educate your community on the issues

Organize a candidate forum and/or develop and disseminate a candidate questionnaire

Partner with National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day, a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy, is on September 17, 2024. Plan a voter registration drive or volunteer at one to celebrate.

Take action to strengthen and expand the right to vote

Tell Congress to pass the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, which would restore and strengthen our freedom to vote by ensuring any changes to voting rules that could discriminate against voters based on race or background are federally reviewed in order to better protect the right to vote.

Phonebank to GOTV

Recruit, organize, and train volunteers — or be a volunteer — to phonebank to GOTV.

Volunteer at the Polls

Recruit and connect volunteers — or join a volunteer network — for Election Day activities, such as poll monitoring.

Get Ready for Election Day
on November 5, 2024 

See something, say something

If you observe issues or have questions at the polls, contact a nonpartisan voter protection hotline.

Go vote!

Wear your “I Voted” sticker with pride.
