Volunteering with the League
The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Phoenix is an all-volunteer membership organization. This means that every member is encouraged to be actively involved with any number of League events and programs. Member participation is the key to League effectiveness! Whatever your interest or expertise, we have a place for you to contribute your time and talents.
As a member, the first thing you can do is talk to your friends and family. Share the newsletters and other information provided by the League. If you can, donate or urge your friends and family to donate. Grow the League by inviting family and friends to join. And finally, follow us on social media and share our posts. More importantly, we invite you to join a committee, attend the meetings and participate fully in the committee’s work. Listed below are descriptions of specific volunteer opportunities. If any of these pique your interest or you would like more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The League of Women Voters provides a key role in educating and registering citizens to become voters! Listed below are the many functions filled by Voter Services volunteers:
Youth Voter Program: Our Youth Voter Program seeks to help young people understand why it is important to vote. Volunteers are needed to educate students and build awareness of how the political process of voting brings about change that can impact their lives.
Voter Registration: Throughout the year, the Voter Services team hosts voter registration tables at various festivals, neighborhoods and public events in Metro Phoenix. Volunteers are needed to help at these “tabling” events. The team also needs Lead Captains who can take responsibility for an individual event and work with the Voter Services chair to make sure that volunteers have all of the materials and information needed for a successful event. You can also become a trained Deputy Registrar to register voters at monthly naturalization ceremonies. This program is offered in partnership with the Maricopa County Recorder's Office. If you’re interested in being a Lead Captain or Deputy Registrar email email@example.com
Get-out-the-Vote Campaigns: In campaign years, the League actively contacts voters urging them to exercise their right to vote. This program requires hundreds of volunteers to phone voters and text voters, write postcards and canvass neighborhoods.
Vote411.org is the League’s premier online voter guide providing accurate, timely, and balanced information about candidates and ballot measures to Arizona voters. In order to publish up-to-date voter information, volunteers are needed to:
Identify Races and Candidates: Volunteers identify the candidates for all federal, state, county and local races, and collect their contact information. Research strategies and scripts for phone calls and emails are provided.
Write Candidate Questions: Members with diverse perspectives craft position-specific questions that reflect the issues most important to voters. Guidelines and sample questions are provided.
Ballot Measure Analysis and Description: A small team of volunteers reads the state ballot measures and distills the language into easy-to-understand arguments for and against the measures.
Operational Support: Volunteers help with publicity, follow up with candidates, read proposed content for clarity, update Arizona voting requirements, assist with social media posts, and much more.
