A tool kit of resources for scaling up vote by mail (Center for Civic Design)
As designers, researchers, and humans we can solve problems. So we’re focusing on what we’re good at: helping election officials make it easier for people to vote – even in these times.
We have materials to support any state or county scaling up their vote-by-mail program to get ready to meet the challenge with templates and sample documents. We’ve got ballot request forms, envelope designs, voter information and instructions, and more, all based on best practices around the country.
Center for Inclusive Democracy Ballot Return Tool
Using publicly available voter data, the web-based Ballot Return Tool produces visualized data maps of early ballots cast by registered voters at the county or precinct level. The technology allows users to increasingly pinpoint community-level voting activities by hovering or zooming in on a particular area or neighborhood. CID updates the maps in real-time as voting data is made available.
