Dave Bogaty Durham Open Voter Registration Project (Durham OpenVR) Update #1

Hello all! I'm announcing a new project that I am starting with Code for Durham, and will be introducing at the meeting this Tuesday, February 21.

Our goal is to get people to vote.

We will attempt to increase voter registration, awareness, engagement, and turnout by three main means: (1) analysis of public voter registration data and historical voting data (2) creating publicly available tools that community groups can use to engage with voters (3) partnering with community and activist groups to engage in voter registration outreach

We've started off with some strategy discussion and data analysis, and can always benefit from more help! Hope to see you on Tuesday.
