AHEPA Chapters nationwide will be helping you in your efforts, and we will be providing you easy online tools to make your vote count! Make sure you download the AHEPA Vote Poster (below) to use throughout your campaign!
1. Register to Vote
It’s easy online through the following two non-partisan sites. Here are direct links to register!
Or if you prefer, download the national voter registration form. Included are state-specific instructions for voter registration. As not all states have the same regulations, please make sure you read your state's section and follow the rules for voter registration.
2. Register Others to Vote
The Greek American vote is only politically important to candidates if our community is registered to vote. Check with your local AHEPA Chapter to connect with their efforts, or simply download the national voter registration form, and make sure you comply with your state’s voter registration laws. Voter registration is a non-partisan activity and can be conducted in the following places:
- Church Halls
- Greek-American Festivals
- Any Public Land without permission
- Private lands (like shopping centers) with permission from owners.
3. Know Where the Candidates Stand
AHEPA is working hard to ensure you know where your members of Congress stand on issues of importance to the Greek-American community. We’ve compiled our Congressional Scorecard for the 110th Congress and have sent out question. Get informed ... Get Involved!
4. VOTE on November 2!
Democracy is one of the greatest gifts our Greek Heritage has contributed to our great nation. It is the cornerstone of what makes America great, and only possible when we all exercise our right to vote. So on November 2, please get to the polls, make sure everyone in our community gets to the polls, and make sure the Greek-American vote counts in this election!
