Spread the Word: ALA’s Voting and Election Toolkit for 2020

With the Iowa caucuses less than a week away, ALA’s Government Documents Round Table’s (GODORT) Voting & Election Toolkits  are here to help librarians answer questions about voter registration, voter ID requirements, and more! These voting and election toolkits were created for and by librarians across the country and provide non-partisan voting & election information for every state and D.C. In these guides you will find answers to FAQs such as voter eligibility requirements, voter registration deadlines, voter ID requirements, ballot information, absentee voting, and more.

The voter registration deadline for participation in the Colorado primary is February 24th, and the Colorado guide will help answer questions about voting requirements, important deadlines and more. Please share this resource with your constituents, spread the word about the toolkits (using the hashtag #ALAVotingToolkit on social media), and use them to help your patrons participate in elections and make their voices heard.

These guides are sponsored by the American Library Association and GODORT and were created by GODORT’s Education Committee and the State Agency Database volunteers. The toolkits will be updated throughout the 2020 election season.
