Shape Up The Vote empowers barbershops to turn out the vote in their neighborhood. We believe in the power of barbers as trusted local leaders, and that their voice is crucial in turning out the vote this election.

Early voting is underway in many swing states, and voters are already receiving mail-in ballots. This window of time is critical for ensuring that people are aware of their voting options.


As a volunteer, you will:

* call barbershops in swing states and inform them of any early voting centers or ballot drop-off boxes near then.

* Ask if they are willing to receive a free kit, which includes voter registration forms, voter rights info, posters with election deadlines, and stickers.

* Collect any relevant contact information


About you:

* You care about voter turnout and voter suppression issues, and have are willing to contact barbers over the phone.
