The American Legion is encouraging American Legion posts and individuals to promote "Get Out the Vote" (GOTV) efforts while remaining nonpartisan in the process. The Legion's "Get Out the Vote" brochure provides ideas on how people can participate in and promote the electoral process in an effort to motivate U.S. citizens of legal age to exercise their right to vote. People and organizations can serve as poll volunteers, host or participate in nonpartisan candidate forums, place public service announcements in local media that promote registration and voting, distribute GOTV promotional materials and more. Plan your GOTV efforts now by downloading the Legion's "Get Out the Vote" and "Vote, America" brochures. For sample GOTV public service announcements and news releases, visit the American Legion website.
