Community & Outreach
DCBOE is committed to enfranchising eligible voters through delivery of comprehensive voter education and outreach services. Our goal is to increase voter awareness, participation, confidence, and trust in DC’s electoral process.
We conduct voter registration events year-round, and host voter education campaigns during election years. These campaigns include informing voters on key election dates, polling place locations, operation of voting equipment, and election worker recruitment.

Does DCBOE provide training for voter registration drives?
Yes. Requests for training to conduct a voter registration drive should be submitted 48 hours before the date of the event to [email protected]
Does DCBOE provide the necessary materials and supplies to host a voter registration drive? Can I pick them up from DCBOE's office?
Yes. Requests for materials should be submitted at least 48 hours before the date of the event. DCBOE does allow walk-in requests, but they will require a wait time of up to 30 minutes to prepare a Voter Registration Kit.
