With continuing concerns about the Coronavirus pandemic and social distancing guidelines influencing potential voter's ability to gather in public, the push to register new voters has moved from in-person to online efforts. While in the past candidates and other groups depended on rallies and in-person volunteers with clipboards, their efforts have now shifted to newer, more innovative methods such as digital concerts, virtual rallies, live-streaming and even text messaging. From Michelle Obama's When We All Vote online streaming group, to the Trump campaign's various digital channels, everyone from corporations like Facebook and Twitter to musicians like the Dave Matthews Band are doing their part to utilize these digital tools to increase voter turnout in November's election.
With forty states now offering online voter registration, it is more important than ever for those unable to access in-person options to take advantage of the many online resources available.
