Volunteer to Provide Free Rides to the Polls on Election Day

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov 4, 2008.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov 4, 2008.

The Minnesota Participation Project (MPP) is a “nonpartisan nonprofit voter mobilization program” sponsored by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.

MPP will be offering free rides to the polls on Election Day, November 4! We will have six accessible vans and several other vehicles throughout the metro area, ready to give free rides. We’re looking for folks to volunteer to drive the accessible vans and receive the necessary training to do so, as well as folks willing to drive their own vehicles.

If you would like to request a ride, volunteer, or for more information, call 1-877-NOV-2008 (1-877-668-2008) or send an email to vote@mncn.org. Please share the rides phone number and begin scheduling rides now!

MPP has a ton of info and some pretty neat tools for helping get folks registered to vote and get folks to the polls to do so. Like Voter Reg-in-a-Box which allows you to register people to vote at your nonprofit or community event (and training to go with it).

Step 1, cut a hole in the box.

    That’s some mighty fancy formatting you did on that picture there.

    This sounds like it would be lots of fun to do!

    I just used the built in thingy. Which I don’t like, but there it is.

    I’ve been considering taking election day off to volunteer. I mainly wanted to help staff my local polling place, but this might be cool, too.
