Outreach Toolkit

2022 is a big election year! The Secretary of State's office encourages every eligible Minnesotan to get registered and go vote!

The Secretary of State is also asking for Minnesotans to step up and become poll workers. It takes around 30,000 poll workers (sometimes called election judges) to put on an Election in Minnesota. Serving as an election judge is a great way to get to know our democracy up close and contribute to your community — plus, you get paid! 

Below, find a variety of nonpartisan materials for spreading the word about elections in 2022 via social media, email, or in person.

In 2016, 2018, and 2020, Minnesota was #1 in the nation in voter turnout! Thanks for doing your part, with these materials, to help us stay at the top.

Please customize these messages to suit your situation, and share as frequently and widely as possible! Download, copy, share, print, and distribute.
