The NASW Code of Ethics (section 6) calls on social workers to promote informed public participation. Social workers have an important role to play in registering citizens to vote, particularly vulnerable populations. We are here to serve as a resource for members who wish to organize voter registration drives, change public policy related to voting rights, and support members in their efforts to become involved in policy advocacy and civic responsibilities. The following is a list of resources you can use to help guide you (or your students if you are at a school of social work).

 

 

 NASW-Michigan Voter Registration Toolkit

  

Guides:

  • Michigan Voting Guide - Registration deadlines, registration forms, requirements for registering, requirements for voting, voting locations, options for voting. Available in PDF format. 
  • Michigan Student Voting Guide - Campus Vote Project - Same as above but specific to students and the special circumstances students may face in voting, including registering at home or school and the impact of registering on financial aid or scholarships.
