  • Virtual Networking Affinity


    With Mid-term elections right around the corner, it's time to ask yourself, " Who IS on the ballot and what do they represent?" For many, the November ballot remains a mystery. Where do you turn to learn more about the candidates? How do you know who is up for re-election? BallotReady is here to help! A digital nonpartisan voter guide, BallotReady helps voters around the country see their entire ballots, view aggregated information about every candidate and every ballot initiative, and share their completed ballots with their friends and networks. 

    Join us for a candid conversation with Nicole Isca, the Director of Voter Outreach for BallotReady, to learn more about their platform and passion to increase voter participation through education.
