Voter Registration

We have Pledge Cards, brochures, and other helpful items as you work on getting people with disabilities to the polls. Visit the Advocate Resources page for many helpful links.

Pledge Cards are an easy way to engage potential voters. Either ask a voter to fill out the pledge, or assist them with an on-line signup. If using the cards, participating organizations can enter the information into the Signup page. Download the REV UP PLEDGE CARD (PDF landscape) or a LARGE PRINT PLEDGE CARD (PDF) to print.

Brochures supply a subset of the information available online.  After filling out a pledge card, the brochure is valuable information that can go home with a prospective voter.

Download the REV UP brochure (PDF)or a Large Print Brochure (PDF – 11X17 paper) to print.

Download the REV UP Spanish brochure (PDF)or a Large Print Spanish Brochure (PDF – 11X17 paper) to print.

Registration Forms:  You can download and print the 2 sided registration forms at www.sec.state.ma.us/ele, or pick up a stack from your town clerk.  You can also get Absentee Ballot requests online, or from your town clerk.

Candidate Interactions

Non-Profit Vote conducted a webinar on Candidate Engagement.  You can download the Interacting with Candidates Powerpoint, or watch the webinar on youtube.com.   Non-profits have to stay non-partisan, and this presentation clarifies the rules.

Accessibility Checklists

REVUP MA needs to develop an easy checklist to give candidates and people organizing forums so that all events and headquarters are accessible. In the meantime, here are a few lists from random events.

Surprisingly, google does not come up with any checklists for candidate headquarters! Maybe we could come up with a list. Of course, ADA compliance is the place to start, but what other things can we suggest?
