#Up2Us 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 November 3rd. The “Up 2 Us” (#Up2Us) campaign will bring together college students, community volunteers, and grassroots organizations to register new voters and update voter information ahead of this year’s gubernatorial elections. 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 October 3rd registration deadline, the #Up2Us campaign will pivot to voter education and get-out-the-vote efforts to boost turnout among millennial and first-time voters.

Goals

  • Register eligible voters before October 3 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
