CareVote

CareVote is a nonpartisan voter engagement initiative of the Providers' Council in which we encourage human services employees to vote to support caring communities.

Sept. 20th is National Voter Registration Day

National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday celebrating our democracy. It seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise. According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. Click here for more information.
