Reach Out to "Newly Moved" Members Who Need to Re-Register to Vote
Someone who was registered to vote previously and recently moved will need to update their voter registration information. This, perhaps, is the “easiest win” for the association, because those who are most likely to vote in an election or on an issue are those who have voted before.
A simple and plain letter and envelope or e-mail is most effective. You may consider printing “Time Sensitive Information Enclosed” on the envelope or e-mail subject line.
Sample Language for a Letter or E-Mail
Copy and paste this sample language into your own letter or e-mail.
