The new Top 50 leaderboards are out!

This week is all about the leaderboards, but I wanted to share a couple of items with you first.

Indiana Registration Video
The Indiana Secretary of State’s office has produced a fun, interesting video encouraging every voter to turnout on Nov. 3. This is actually just one in a series of videos aimed at showing exactly why one vote can matter. Have you considered doing something similar to show students why their vote counts? If you have any ideas you’d like to bounce off of us, go ahead and shoot us an email at partnerships@turbovote.org. We’re always excited to hear from you.

Reminders Only
Can voters still sign up for reminders and will they receive text and email notifications for this year's Nov 3 election? The answer is YES! 
 
Though many registration deadlines have passed, it is still important for you to encourage voters to sign up for TurboVote. Users signing up after the registration deadline for the upcoming election will be able to vote in future elections and registered voters can use TurboVote this election cycle to make sure they have the right address for their polling place on Election Day to stay informed about future elections. By reaching out now, you will also ensure that everyone in your community has the opportunity to prepare for future elections by registering, changing their registration or mailing information, and subscribing to election reminders.

Leaderboards
We’ve seen some late surges this past week in registrations. Some have even resulted in brewing in-state rivalries, like Virginia Tech’s climb and UVA’s continued status among our leaders. Either way, we looooove seeing these sign-up numbers and hope you all will keep up the good work!
