League members in North Carolina, we want to help you promote VOTE411.org! This page is meant to serve as a directory of resources. There's no need to "reinvent the wheel" – or a VOTE411 postcard, public service announcement, press release, or flyer – when the material you are looking for may already exist via this hub. Feel free to email Andrea Cash at cash [at] lwvnc.org if you'd like to see a particular piece of content added to this page – or if you need help customizing VOTE411 materials for your League!
Remember, high-resolution logos specific to your League name can be found on the LWVUS site.

Press Coverage of VOTE411 in North Carolina
“When we first moved [here], I didn't find much on voting so thank you for this accessible, easily understood, non-partisan site. So now we are better informed citizens!”
“I have used the guide since I became an American citizen and started to vote. Thank you for helping me understand the issues important to our community…”
“VOTE411 keeps me up to date on the elections happening in my state.”
- There is no “best way” to promote VOTE411 – word of mouth, social media, printed promotional materials, billboards, U.S. mail all work. Think about what audience you’re trying to reach! QR codes aren’t best for certain demographics, while others are quite adept at using them.
- College students have reported they like posters and flyers that keep the name in front of them.
- Ask yourself who you can partner with to get the word out.
- Different media can be more effective at different times. Bookmarks are best passed out early to keep; billboards are most effective in the month before an election, and radio spots are most effective the week before an election.
- The most expensive tactics should be used at the last minute when the majority of people use the site – our statistics indicate that 58-64% of users log on during the final week before Election Day.
