Following a year of demonstrating our political will and community power through protests, more Black voters showed up to the polls in November than ever before.
Let's do it again.
There are critical races in Virginia that impact the day-to-day lives of the Black community, including governor, the state legislator, and leadership in various cities and towns.
NAACP volunteers like you can transform the political landscape of our state. In Georgia, our volunteers helped turn out 221,000 additional Black voters to secure things like life-saving vaccines and equitable economic stimulus during the pandemic. There's even more on the line in Virginia right now, and this election is our chance to flex our collective power once again.
Our voices must be heard. We need everybody in our community to vote in November and you're perfectly positioned to inform and rally your neighbors. By talking with Black voters, you can increase turnout in Virginia and make our voices heard at the ballot box.
We'll provide the names, you provide your voice, and together we'll make a difference again this year.

The more volunteers we have, the more potential voters we can reach!
Contact Black Voters in Your Community
We'll send you the names and provide the script. All you have to do is reach out and help spread the importance of voting in all elections.
Encourage Your Community to Vote
Take your commitment one step further by encouraging others to vote in your community. Explain the benefit of being civically engaged with local and federal offices.
I see the need to make sure not only my vote counts but that everybody votes. Anybody that I know or come in contact with will realize how important it was to get their vote in there as well.- 2020 NAACP Volunteer
