2021 Judicial Elections Toolkit, Better Civics
Posted by Better Civics on October 12, 2021
And just like that… there is another election. Voting by mail has begun for the November 2nd, 2021 General Election and we’ve got Judges, District Attorney and City Controller on the ballot. There will also be charter questions, which continue to be written in a terribly confusing way (why is that!?).
When it comes to the judicial elections, we’ve got you covered. While we can’t tell you who to vote for, we can explain the different courts, how retention voting works, and how endorsements are actually made. All so you can be more informed and confident casting your ballot.
To learn all about the upcoming judicial elections, and to share this important information with your communities, check out our updated 2021 Judicial Elections Toolkit.
This toolkit has a presentation, social media cards, a brochure and games to use as you please to educate anyone in your network, including civic associations, your office, at community events, and your neighbors. Here are some suggested uses for the toolkit:
- Include information in your newsletter
- Deliver the Presentation to your group, organization or friends, family and neighbors
- Post the Social Media Graphics to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
- Print and hand-out the Brochures at events or during canvassing
- Play Quizzo and do the Word Search at your next meeting or social gathering (or at the dinner table with your family)
- Play BINGO during Judicial Candidate Forums or while researching judges – offer prizes!
You can download the 2021 Judicial Elections Toolkit. Please let us know how you plan to use it, or if you have any questions we can help answer.
