Voter Resources for the Arts Community and Beyond

Here at Oakland Ballet we’ve gathered a few resources that we felt might help smooth the voting process. We hope they make casting your ballot easier, and if you want to go beyond the ballot and get more involved in arts advocacy, we’ve got you covered too! Feel free to share them if you or someone you know might find them helpful, and happy voting!

Vote.org is a non-partisan, non-profit organization, dedicated to helping connect you to the resources you need to get the most updated and accurate information about your local voting process.

For any first-time or young voters, the “How to Vote in Every State” YouTube channel, created by Media Wise Voter Project and educational video production company Complexly, provides current resources on voting guidelines. They have also created a Voting Guide meant to help young voters, across the political spectrum, find accurate and reliable information on the internet as they prepare to cast their ballots.

Specific to the performing arts industry, Dance USA has prepared a November 2020 Elections Toolkit, along with a list of voting resources and additional information discussing relevant issues impacting the dance industry and arts sector today.

Lastly, Americans for the Arts Action Fund has created an Arts Vote 2020 Campaign that has resources on how you can advocate for the arts sector and get involved in getting the arts community out to vote!
