Youth Group Registration Drive

Host a voter registration drive at your church and/or other churches

  • Ask the head pastor for permission to hold a voter registration drive on a specific Sunday.
  • Ask if you and your youth group can make an announcement about Be My Vote.
  • Ask permission to show the Register to Vote and Vote Pro Life video.
  • Ask if you can put an insert in the bulletin.
  • Arrange for a table to be set up in the lobby.
  • Download a voter registration form.  Make as many copies as you think you will need.
  • Pre-address individual envelopes made out to the office where completed forms must be sent.  Download this Voter Registration Manual to find the mailing info for your state. (NOTE – Do not mail all the completed forms in one large envelope. Many states do not allow this.  To be sure we are complying with state regulations, the forms must be mailed individually. You will give each person a pre-addresses envelope and ask them to mail their own form.)
  • Print a copy of the “I Registered” form. Write your youth leader’s name and your church name on the form LARGE and preferably with a Sharpie.
  • Every time a person registers at the table, make sure they sign the “I Registered” form. After your voter registration drive, take a picture of it with  your phone or digital camera and email it to info@bemyvote.com.  Be sure the name of the youth leader that signed the group up and the church’s name are written legibly.
  • When a person fills out a voter registration form, put it in one of the pre-addressed envelopes, give it to the person, and ask them to please mail it.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  If an adult tells you he or she is not pro-life but wants to register to vote, be polite and allow him/her to register at the table.

For voter registration drives at Christian bookstores, concerts or festivals, get permission to set up a table on a specific day, and follow the steps above.

 Christian Schools Idea 1: 100% Registered Campaign

If any of your students go to a Christian school, have them make sure all of their teachers and staff are registered to vote! Have your group:

  • Ask the principal for permission to hold a 100% Registered Campaign at their school.
  • Set a day for a voter registration drive.
  • Put up flyers around the school and put a flyer in each teacher’s mailbox.
  • Let your teachers know you are making it a goal to have 100% of them registered to vote.
  • Get permission to speak at a school assembly or during start-of-the-day announcements.  Be sure to use the opportunity to recruit other students for Be My Vote, too.
  • See “Host a voter registration drive at your church” above for instructions about obtaining and submitting forms.
  • Set up a table for voter registration in the teacher’s lounge on the scheduled day.
  • You won’t be able to man the table all day, so create a sign with instructions asking teachers to fill out a registration form, take a pre-addressed envelope, mail the form in themselves, and sign the “I Registered” form on your table.
  • Take a picture with your phone or digital camera and email it to info@bemyvote.com.  Be sure your name is written large on the form, and that the image is not blurry (sometimes flash can help).  You’ll get points for everyone who signs the “I Registered” form.

 Christian Schools Idea 2: Parent Registration Campaign

  • Ask permission to set up a voter registration table on Parent/Teacher Night , PTA/PTO meeting, football game, basketball game, volleyball game, school play, etc .
  • Ask permission to make an announcement at the event.
  • Set up a table and take voter registrations. (See instructions under “Host a voter registration drive at your church” above for instructions about obtaining and submitting voter registration forms.)
  • Print a copy of the “I Registered” form. Write your youth leader’s name and your church name on the form LARGE and preferably with a Sharpie.
  • Every time a person registers at the table, make sure they sign the “I Registered” form. After your voter registration drive, take a picture of it with  your phone or digital camera and email it to info@bemyvote.com.  Be sure your name is written large in a corner of the form.
  • When a person fills out a voter registration form, put it in one of the pre-addressed envelopes, give it to the person, and ask them to please mail it.
  • If you can’t host a registration drive for parents, get permission to send home a flyer with every student, asking parents to register at www.BeMyVote.com.  Be sure to include your name.
