At a time when our nation seems so polarized by politics, National Voter Registration Day is something we can all get behind, no matter who we’re voting for. Ahead of the midterm elections, “Good Morning America” is highlighting some ways you can make sure your voice is heard, and how some organizations are stepping up to show there is no excuse to not hit the polls this November. … Stephanie Young, a spokesperson for the nonpartisan organization When We All Vote, which is co-chaired by former first lady Michelle Obama, told “GMA” that it is important to make voting a “collective” activity.
Young recommends starting a conversation with those around you about voting, saying, “People are more inclined to listen to people that they know and trust.”
“It can help to encourage you,” to hit the polls, she said, “and it can also help to hold you accountable.
“Start a text chain, say, ‘Hey, is everybody registered?’ You can literally send them our link,” she said. “Then follow up with that text chain.”
