Voter Service volunteers impact our community by:

  • Registering citizens to vote.
  • Identifying other community organizations & individuals interested in promoting an informed and active electorate.
  • Promoting voter turnout on election day, with special focus on groups with historically low turnout.
  • Partnering with community organizations to Get Out The Vote (GOTV).
  • Educating the community on basic registration and voting information.
  • Providing key election dates and deadlines.
  • Informing the public about changes in election law.
  • Surveying local and state candidates for their responses to issue-based questions for publication. The Pinellas County Voter Guide is an online community resource for election and voting information. 
  • Researching all sides of local ballot issues and creating “yes vote” and “no vote” analysis statements for publication in the Voter Guide.
  • Conducting candidate forums, observing state and national League guidelines to assure fairness and impartiality.
