Overview 

Use these sample posts to accompany our Vote Early Day graphics and any other content you want to share about voting early! We’ve included posts for both your specific activation and for sharing resources for voting early more generally—use whichever messages work best for your celebration and your mission. 

Social Media Tips & Tricks

  • These posts are just samples to provide inspiration. Please feel free to personalize the message to fit your style and your voice. 
  • Social media is a great way to raise awareness of how many people are voting early. Encourage your audience to post selfies with their “I voted” stickers and share stories about why voting is important to them. This creates a sense of FOMO (fear of missing out) for anyone who hasn’t voted yet and will make them want to join the crowd in casting their ballot early!
  • Include #VoteEarlyDay in every post to amplify your message to a national audience. 
  • Include a “call to action” in every post. This can include RSVP info for your celebration or a link to Vote Early Day’s online voter tool where people can find their options to vote early and make a plan to vote (coming soon).
  • Use photos and videos (especially ones that feature people) as much as possible. Social media platforms prioritize these posts in their algorithms, so they’ll be circulated to a wider audience. 
  • Don’t wait until Vote Early Day to start posting about voting early! We’ve included sample messages for the weeks leading up to October 28 so people will be prepared with the tools they need to cast their ballot on Vote Early Day.
