How to launch Voting Block for your 2018 state or local election

Based on what we did last year in New Jersey, here are some tips to get you started

1. Pick an election that is important to, or will have an impact on, your community.

2. Forge partnerships with newsrooms and community organizations.

3. Find individuals in prospective neighborhoods to participate.

4. Write a profile of each community that is part of the reporting.

6. Leverage the power of the collaborative network to engage the greater public.

7) Keep the conversation going during — and after the election.
