The right to vote is an essential part of using our voices and participating in our communities to promote our beliefs and values. For survivors, voting can be empowering and can create opportunity to address barriers to safety through policies and government representation. However, voting can create safety issues for survivors who are concerned about an abusive partner locating them through their voter registration record. Survivors also may have safety concerns around going in person to vote, waiting in long lines, or knowing their rights and successfully registering.

 

In this webinar, we will address privacy and voter registration, and the unique concerns that survivors may have. We’ll talk about how advocates can provide information, resources, and support in both registering to vote and either voting in person or via a mail-in ballot. We’ll also talk about how exercising our vote is a part of advocacy.
