WANTED: Hosts for Voter Trainings

More articles »

The 2016 general election will be here before we know it, and it is time to start preparing now. ID Action offers a voter training to inform and educate Iowans with disabilities about the election process. The training focuses on assisting participants to overcome barriers to voting and provides the opportunity to register to vote, request an absentee ballot and become comfortable with Iowa’s election equipment.

ID Action is looking for hosts for a few more voter trainings.  As the host, all you need to do is find the location and send out the invites. ID Action staff will provide the training and materials you need to be prepared to vote in November.  We still have openings for trainings in October in the following locations:

  • East Central Iowa (Johnson, Linn, Cedar counties) – October 11, 13
  • Eastern Iowa – October 19 & 20

If you are interested in hosting a training in your community, please contact ID Action at 866-432-2846 or contactus@idaction.org. If you are outside of these areas of the state and would like to host a training, please contact us for availability.
