GIH Public Policy Strategies Audioconference Series
Thursday, May 17

Despite unusually high rates of voter participation in the 2008 election, only 60 percent of the nation’s voting-eligible population turned-out at the polls four years ago and an even smaller proportion cast votes in the 2010 mid-term elections. As highlighted in a recent GIH Issue Focus article, health funders can and do have an important role to play in empowering communities through voter engagement efforts. This webinar considered the non-partisan activities that grassroots organizations conduct to increase voter registration and mobilization in traditionally under-represented groups and explored legitimate ways health funders can help support these efforts within existing legal boundaries.
