Cincinnati NAACP Mobile Civic Engagement Unit Unveiling and Media Day
February 12 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Holloman Center for Social Justice
Attend the Cincinnati NAACP Mobile Civic Engagement Unit Unveiling and Media Day on February 12 at the Holloman Center for Social Justice.
Securing voting rights and fair government representation are essential to democracy. On February 12, 2024, Cincinnati NAACP will be the first chapter to launch V.O.T.E., a comprehensive strategy that includes a mobile unit to engage Hamilton County residents in voting directly.
Media, influencers, and the community are invited to the unveiling of the Cincinnati NAACP comprehensive voter and civic engagement strategy and mobile support unit. The first Cincinnati NAACP Mobile Civic Engagement Unit outreach event will be held in April 2024, with monthly events with community partners scheduled afterward. Cincinnati NAACP leaders, mobile unit sponsors, and community partners will discuss strategic priorities and bus appearances, show the mobile unit, and be available for interviews.
Cincinnati NAACP Mobile Civic Engagement Unit retrofitted with computer stations, printers, and WI-FI will travel to historically marginalized neighborhoods with low voter engagement.
Trained volunteers will:
- educate residents about the voting process
- distribute instructional materials, print their sample ballot
- provide absentee ballot request forms
- assist in online registration (paper voter registration forms will also be available).
Additionally, residents will be instructed on:
- verifying their registration status
- tracking their mailed applications and ballots
- finding polling locations
- identifying their elected officials.
