In partnership with the Board of Elections and Chicago social impact organizations, Chicago Cares is hosting a multi-week digital GOTV outreach campaign. Through this project, volunteers will use phone and text banking software to reach communities and share resources to help voters register and create voting plans during the pandemic. Voting is a fundamental part of our democracy and Cook County wants to ensure eligible voters are counted. Do your part and help spread the word! At the beginning of each GOTV session, volunteers will receive an introduction to the digital platforms they will be using to send texts through their computer along with an orientation. Texts are sent from phone numbers through the computer software, not from volunteers' own phones or numbers. A computer is required to engage in this volunteer opportunity. Once you sign up to volunteer for this event, you will need to create an account with Slack, an online communication platform. Responsibilities include: - Utilizing ThruText to text Chicagoans - Collecting and submitting data. Sign Up
