DOs and DON'Ts


  • Be positive.
  • Smile.
  • Answer questions.
  • Be persistent. Respond to a “no” with “it’s only 3 lines on a form” or “it only takes a minute.”
  • Write legibly. Fill out the form for people completely, including phone number.
  • Have applicant sign and date the form.
  • Collect all completed forms at the worksite.
  • Thank the registrant!


  • Never ask “Are you Registered?” People will inevitably say “yes” because it is embarrassing to say “no” or they don’t want to take the time.
  • Never antagonize. Learn to tell when “no” really means “no.”
  • Don’t hand completed forms to election board. Give them all to the Worker/Voter Coordinator from your local.
  • Don’t forget to have them sign and date the form.
