Volunteer Opportunities

Voter Service and Registration

We receive many requests from community groups to provide speakers on ballot issues, and we hope to reach out to new communities that previously have not taken advantage of our services.  We need people to staff tables at various city wide special events, talking to people about issues and distributing publications.

Contact Deborah Shefler at voterservice [at] lwvoakland.org or call the office at 510-834-7640.  Read more about Voter Service and Voter Registration!
