October 4, 2022 (New York, NY) – It’s National Voter Education Week
! Are you #VoteReady?
Check your voter status, learn about voting deadlines, and more:
To help prepare for the midterm elections on November 8th, the Sikh Coalition has launched a Civic Action Center
where you can check your voter registration status, register to vote, and learn about the deadlines, candidates, mail-in and absentee ballots, and voting procedures specific to your area. Use this tool to ensure that you and your friends and family are ready to vote in the weeks ahead!
Volunteer to phone bank and help ensure Sikhs nationwide are #VoteReady:
The Sikh Coalition is hosting virtual phone banking sessions on Saturday, October 15
, and Saturday, October 29
. Will you join us?
- Through this initiative, sevadaars will directly connect with thousands of Sikh households in key states such as Georgia, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, and Ohio. Each phone bank session will take place remotely via Zoom, and you do not have to live in one of these states in order to participate.
- You must register in advance to recieve the Zoom log-in information for the session you have signed up for. Click here to sign up to phone bank on Saturday, October 15th. Click here to sign up to phone bank on Saturday, October 29th.
- No prior phone banking experience is required. Each session is three-hours long (2-5 PM ET) and will include a tailored virtual training for sevadaars to learn how to make their calls using CallHub. Sevadaars will also have access to real-time support from Sikh Coalition staff while calls are being made.
- As a reminder, the Sikh Coalition is a non-profit and non-partisan organization. All of our GOTV work--including these calls to voters--is being done in support of broader Sikh American civic engagement, and not for the benefit of any candidate, elected official, or political party. Those who sign up to make calls will not be permitted to encourage voters to cast their ballot for a specific party or candidate.
The Sikh Coalition believes that it is critical for all Americans, regardless of their party affiliation or political preferences, to cast their ballots for federal elected officials, governor and other state-level positions, local-level officials, and ballot issues. In the weeks leading up to November 8th, we will continue sharing information about how to get out the vote and prepare for Election Day. Please email our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions.
As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
