Social workers can legally and ethically conduct nonpartisan voter engagement as part of their practice. Health and human service workers and organizations can empower clients by equipping them with the resources they need to cast their ballots.

Voting is healthy for individuals and communities. Use these resources for yourself and in your practicum to connect clients and partners to the political process.
