Vot-ER badges are our most popular tool and the fastest way to integrate civic engagement into your hospital. Here's how the badges work:
* Only badges created since August 2021 have this trackable feature.
Yes, each member of your team can order their badge at vot-er.org/badge; just be sure to include the same team, department or institution on the order form. Then each team member will receive a badge and lanyard in the mail and can track how many voters they registered individually and as a team!
Please note: We no longer mail "bulk orders" to one person to give to their team— each team member must order their badge separately. You can order custom printable materials for your team at vot-er.org/custom-materials.
If you'd like to order badges for your group, department, or institution, each member of your team can order their badge right from vot-er.org/badge—just be sure to include the same organization on the order form.
Please note: We no longer ship “bulk orders”. Each team member must order their badge separately.
Absolutely. All Vot-ER materials will continue to work until at least the end of 2024. Older badges (from before August 2021) have all new features except individualized tracking.
We're so excited to have you on board! To get started right away, you can print a badge, download voter registration flyers, add a voter registration message to your email signature, and more at: vot-er.org/download.
The vast majority of health care workers do not need to get approval. As a healthcare professional, you’re free to place any information on your ID badge that is helpful to you and your patients. The important thing to remember is that patients choose whether to use Vot-ER’s registration platform and when they do so, they share information on their own phones. In short, you are offering patients an opportunity to access voter information—you’re not conducting the registration yourself.
Yes, it's legal for hospitals and other healthcare facilities to conduct nonpartisan voter registration and education activity.
The IRS explicitly states that “501(c)(3) organizations may conduct voter engagement", and the Health Resources & Services Administration has affirmed that community health centers can run "non-partisan voter registration efforts as a means of reducing barriers to civic engagement within the communities they serve."
