The Community Outreach Calendar focused on Voter registration/education from June 1-October 11 and Getting Out the Vote from October 11 through November 8.
The Fall 2022 election bookmark was our initial outreach to voters with information on the methods of voting as well as resources to support informed voters.
Efforts to reach low voter turnout areas and to encourage voter registration included the Every Door, Direct Mail Postcard. This communication was distributed to 15000 households in precincts 4010, 4011. 4003, 2075, 2007, 2004, 2103, 2105, 1015 and 1040.
8100 Promise to Vote Postcards were direct mailed to registered voters in the same precincts.
Additional Promise to Vote Cards, in English and Spanish, were distributed at face to face events.
Thank you to the Universalist Unitarian Church for their support of our work with a $3600 Grant for the Promise to Vote Cards and the Spanish Translations.
Community outreach continues to educate the voting community through a variety of outreach methods–tabling events at community gatherings, presentations and distributions. We had events at senior centers, colleges, fairs and other community gatherings.
To date, Community Outreach has had approximately 8600 conversations with potential voters; registered over 700 Bexar County Voters and 240 other county registrations; and, distributed an additional 2000 mail in voter registration applications. 15000 residences received a postcard prior to the voter registration deadline; 8100 registered voters received an additional reminder to go vote.
Additional LWVSA materials were distributed via other organizations such as NAACP, Meals on Wheels, SA Food Bank, LULAC, Esperanza for Peace and Justice, SA Public Libraries, UTSA, SAC and AM-SA College Libraries.
