Calendar

The #Up2Us Campaign is a 16 week voter registration, voter protection and Get Out the Vote (GOTV) campaign led by Mississippi Votes. It is a non-partisan effort to register and mobilize young Mississippians to vote on Election Day. The “Up 2 Us” (#Up2Us) campaign brings together college students, community volunteers, and grassroots organizations to register new voters and update voter information ahead of each election. Mississippi Votes will host forums and trainings around the state for volunteers who want to take part in registration drives in their communities. After the registration deadline, the #Up2Us campaign will pivot to voter education and GOTV efforts to boost turnout among millennial and first-time voters.

Goals

  • Register eligible voters before deadline
  • Educate voters on candidates, issues, and voting process
  • Work with community leaders to engage voters across the state
  • Assist voters in their voting plan
  • Host forums/trainings
