Welcome to Viewpoint Votes!
Viewpoint Votes! is a nonpartisan initiative that educates the community on voting history, electoral process, candidate platforms, voter access, registration, and voting. By enabling courageous conversations, Viewpoint Votes! provides a context for voting and promotes its importance as a civic duty. Curriculum, webinars, school day events, debates, voter registration, and a mock election will inform voter awareness, what is at stake in this election, and how to vote. The goal is for all eligible voters in Viewpoint’s community to vote in the general election on November 3, 2020.
