Community and non-profit organizations often serve as trusted resources for information and access for many Minneapolis residents. All of the educational resources and materials produced by Minneapolis Elections & Voter Services are available for use by any organization or group to help share neutral information about how elections work. Elections & Voter Services is also interested in partnering with organizations to identify other ways in which the division can support organizations in helping Minneapolis residents connect with information about how to register and vote.
Elections & Voter Services will have materials your organization can use to help share key messages about the 2017 election. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in personalizing these materials with your organizational contact information as well.
Voter pledge cards are a great way for organizations to connect with potential voters and gain a commitment for action on Election Day. These pledge cards are designed to include a space for voters to indicate why they are voting. The card also allows your organization to get contact information to reach back out to those voters with Election Day reminders if you choose.
You can download and print pledge cards for use any time. This template prints three cards per 8.5 x 11" page.

CORE stands for Charitable Organizations Recruitment for Elections.This program allows nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations to receive compensation for recruiting individuals to serve as volunteer (unpaid) election judges. An organization is required to recruit a minimum of 10 volunteer (unpaid) election judges in order to receive compensation. Compensation for the organization is $1,300 (minimum of 10 judges who attend training and work on Election Day) plus $130 for each additional election judge.
Election judges gain valuable experience working with voters and for the City of Minneapolis, and are helping to serve the community by participating in making voting more accessible at polling places across the city.
We hope to partner with your organization! To learn more and to participate, contact Jeff Narabrook at email@example.com.
