lwvnys Voices: Political Advocacy Tool app

 

  • The League of Women Voters of New York State Voices: Political Advocacy Tool APP is designed to make political advocacy easy and to familiarize League of Women Voters members with local, state, and federal political representatives.
  • The APP provides a series of monthly alerts aimed at introducing and sustaining support for different political causes along with League of Women Voters positions on current issues. Alerts vary in content, ranging from reminders about voting registration to information about current policy initiatives. By making elected officials easy to reach, the APP’s goal is to ensure that all voices are heard during the policy-making process.
  • After downloading the APP from www.tryvoices.com or by using the links above, entering in the necessary iTunes, Android and Google Play information, and quickly inputting the desired address or location by voice and/or type, the APP displays current representatives with political affiliation, alongside their phone, email, and Twitter information.
  • Additionally, the APP includes several response templates, including phone, email, Twitter and letter examples, provided to help citizens advocate to their representatives easily and making democracy work for all.
