Voter Empowerment Volunteer Opportunities

  • Candidate Forums 

Candidate Forums
During the two months before the November 5, 2024 election, we will need a Moderator, two Question Screeners, a Timekeeper, and Page(s) for each Candidate Forum, whether in person or via Zoom. This is a great way to engage with candidates and the election process. We welcome and support new volunteers.

Coordinated by Jane Andrews.

  • Tabling and Voter Registration

This is your opportunity to register eligible voters and connect with current voters to let them know what services the League offers. These activities happen at community events, libraries, etc. In-person training is provided. For more information, contact Greta & Sarah at

Volunteers can also help out in our efforts to implement Prop 17 (passed in 2020) to make sure that people who are on parole know they have the right to vote.

Coordinated by Jeanne Weidner.

VOTE411 is an online voter guide produced by the League of Women Voters Education Fund to provide unbiased information about what's on your ballot.

Four months before each election,  the California VOTE411 operations team starts identifying which contests are likely to appear on the ballot This ensures that voter addresses will be mapped to the correct candidate contests and measures statewide. Interested San Diego volunteers are welcome to help with this major task.

In the two months before each election, a dedicated group of volunteers reaches out to candidates and gathers local election information, to ensure voters can access non-partisan ballot information and can confidently cast their ballots.

Join the Telephone Team, the Research Team, and/or get technical training to become a LoCo (a Local Coordinator, who manages candidate and ballot measure info during the two months before elections).

Coordinated by Julie Ann Sih


  • Speakers Bureau 

Be a part of our education team to inform voters of the pros and cons of the state and local ballot measures. In late summer, we’ll need volunteers to research the measures and in October 2024, members will bring the presentation to community organizations in person and virtually. If you're new to the Speakers Bureau, we'll pair you up with an experienced speaker to show you the ropes.

Year-round, the Speakers Bureau presents other informative talks to community groups.

Coordinated by Jeanne Weidner.

  • Money in Politics

Help us get public financing of campaigns on the ballot with the San Diego Democracy Dollars Coalition, which includes Common Cause, Represent Us, and other local organizations. Learn more about how Democracy Dollars work.
