We believe that everyone has a voice, and that voting is one way for people to have their voices heard. Choosing to exercise your right to vote is a choice for equality, for effective policies, and for your community to thrive.
The Hispanic Affairs Project believes that active civic engagement is key to immigrant integration.
We promote this by:
- Encouraging active voter participation in local, state and federal elections.
- Promoting voter education and participation through community forums and outreach to eligible and current voters.
- Helping voters understand the electoral system, ballot information and where to seek assistance if they have difficulties with the voting process.
- Providing opportunities for community members to advocate for issues impacting their community.
- Canvas homes to share literature with potential voters
- Conduct phone and/or text outreach with potential voters
- Drive voters to the polls on November 3rd
- Pick up and drop off sealed mail in ballots for voters who are unable to get to the ballot box on election day
Take action on local issues!
