Volunteers are vital to LVWME's success.
There are numerous ways to get involved, depending on your interest, skills, and availability:
- Advocacy Volunteers
Advocacy volunteers help develop League policy positions and strategies, as well as provide public support for policy priorities through testimony and letters to the editor, among other tactics. Advocacy volunteers can also provide administrative support in the form of data entry, or join us at a phone banking event.
- Public Education Volunteers
Our education efforts include both civic education programs (for students) and voter education programs. Volunteers play a valuable role by leading League presentations on a variety of topics to help inform and inspire members of the public to take an active role in our democracy.
- Voter Registration Volunteers
Voter registration is at the heart of LWVME's work, making sure as many eligible Mainers as possible are ready to take part in the next election. Voter registration efforts include tabling at public events and attending naturalization ceremonies.
- GOTV Volunteers
LWVME encourages all Mainers to be civically active, and that begins with encouraging eligible residents to cast their vote in every election. Efforts include distributing our Nonpartisan Voter Guide, passing out absentee ballot requests, participating in phone banking efforts, and much more.
