The clock is ticking. Hawaii’s primary election is Saturday, Aug. 9. Everyone knows Hawaii’s voter turnout statistics are dismal, but do you know what the voter turnout is in your own circles? Are all of the eligible voters you know -- your staff, board, volunteers, clients, community members, friends and family -- registered to vote and ready to cast their ballots?
Election season is a great opportunity to encourage people to participate in the democratic process and discuss the many important issues that affect our communities. By staying nonpartisan and following some key guidelines, 501(c)(3) organizations can successfully engage in election-related activities. Here are some useful resources for 501(c)(3) nonprofits who want to get active this election season:
Nonprofit VOTE – Visit their website for various resources and easy-to-read factsheets on 501c3 voter engagement. For example, check out these:
- 501(c)(3) Permissible Activities Checklist
- What Nonprofit Staff Can Do
- Voter Participation Starter Kit
Bolder Advocacy at the Alliance for Justice – Another great source of informational materials and legal advice for nonprofits doing voter engagement and advocacy. Some recommended reading:
- Election Checklist for 501(c)(3) Public Charities
- Candidate Questionnaires and Voter Guides
- Hosting Candidate Debates
In today’s legal and economic climate, protecting board members, staff and the organization itself from claims is critical. HANO provides low-cost, high-quality D&O insurance. Read More
