Voter registration and get out the vote activities are among the most effective, inexpensive and inclusive forms of advocacy and community engagement.
Presidential elections are a huge opportunity to register young people, communities of color and people living in low-income neighborhoods.
But the pandemic has made this work more difficult. There has been a massive drop off in voter registration in New York City this year. Compared to June 2016, almost 80,000 less people registered to vote. This is a decline of 49%.
