BRIDGETON, N.J. — As election season approaches, organizations like The National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) dedicated this fall to ensure that voters are more than prepared to vote in the upcoming election. On Wednesday, September 23, the NCoC will host a nonpartisan digital voter education campaign focused on educating voters on their choices called “Implementing Resilient Voting Plans during COVID-19.”

Leaders and experts from Vote Early Day and National Voter Registration Day will spend the virtual event covering the basics on the latest voting initiatives and tools to use to inform voters in other communities. Also, the session will host local leaders who will be sharing their experiences and ideas for COVID-19 proofing voter outreach plans.

 “Voters, especially new voters, should have the tools, information, and confidence they need to vote safely and securely,” the organization said on its website.

The event will be held from 2-3 p.m. on Wednesday, September 23 on Zoom. Attendees must register for the event to receive details and updates on the meeting. This initiative will allow for the collaboration of community leaders and members to share resources and tools to ensure the community will have access to all the voting information they will need this fall.

You can register for this virtual event here.
