4) Get trained to become a Voter Registration Volunteer!
We trained a great team of volunteers in Geneva a couple weeks ago but still need more help as we put all our energy into getting Americans in Switzerland (and France voisine) registered to vote before the deadlines. For many states, this is already in early October so we urgently need you these next couple weeks! We are holding a training session via teleconference. You can dial in to the call from home using a local dial-up number or via Skype.
Date: Sunday, 9th September 2012
Time: 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Where: Teleconference
