The Providers’ Council appreciates your support of the electoral process!
CareVote — the Council’s nonpartisan voter engagement initiative — encourages all human services employees, clients, consumers, board members and friends to register to vote and to support caring communities.
Voting is more important than ever this year with a highly impactful presidential race, contested local elections, and important ballot questions.
Accordingly, the Council is asking member organizations to appoint CareVote Captains to serve as the point person for their voter registration efforts. The Council will be sending materials to Captains for social media, email and other mediums to register staff to vote, inform them about important deadlines and other information pertinent to voting in the general election — Please pass the contact information for your CareVote Captain on to Caroline O’Neill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
