Our Voter Registration Project
No more off-years.
Congresswoman Veronica Escobar has launched Vote El Paso, an El Paso-based voter registration program to help register more Texas Democrats to vote.
As part of an overall goal to help the Texas Democratic Party register more than a million new Democrats across the state, Vote El Paso takes charge in El Paso County, Texas, aiming to register thousands of new voters every year.
With a newly-passed voter suppression law enacted, registering Texans to vote is more important than ever. And so is turnout.
Not only will Vote El Paso be the driving force behind Democrat voter registration in the county, it will also provide voters with a simple, yet thorough website to reference for polling locations, date and times, how to register to vote by mail, and what casting a ballot looks like for first-time voters. Complete with videos and a quick-contact section that allows voters to directly contact a member of the Vote El Paso team, VoteElPaso.com will be critical in improving voter turnout.
Voting shouldn’t be hard. And neither should registering to vote.
And that’s why Congresswoman Veronica Escobar launched Vote El Paso. She’s committed to funding this effort solely through her campaign funds. With your help, we can register more people, reach more voters, and drive El Paso County to be a leader in voter engagement. This investment couldn’t be more critical. But we need your support.
We believe the future of Texas depends on the activism we take now. Affordable healthcare, fair wages, and equality all rest with us and the effort we make today.
Our Voter Education Project
In addition to registering voters, Vote El Paso will maintain contact with newly-registered voters and offer reminders during elections and resources on voting.
Our new Vote El Paso website provides easily understood voting resources in both English and Spanish. This includes how to register, where to vote, and details about the next election.
As a response to questions received during past election seasons such as “What does a polling location look like?” and “How do I complete a ballot?” our team will produce video guides to give people the confidence they need to cast their ballot. We understand being unfamiliar with voting leads to a reluctance to vote. Which is why the Vote E Paso team will offer online resources in Spanish and English to help voters feel more prepared to head to the ballot box.
Vote El Paso captains will also send emails and texts helping newly-registered voters find a polling location near them and information on their individual voting options, working directly with voters to increase turnout.
