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.
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.
Encourage your patients to vote by sharing nonpartisan, personal examples, such as “I vote because I care about the world I am leaving for my children,” rather than talking about specific candidates or parties.
For more guidance on how to start the conversation, check out our voter scripts.
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.
