The 100 Registers 5,500 Texas Voters During COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, The 100 Black Men of Austin, Inc. had to pivot their voter registration efforts. To keep our members safe, we partnered with Defend Our Future to create a contactless effort to increase voter registration across the state of Texas and created a voter registration PSA that ran on local tv stations. A direct mailer of 61,000 pre-printed voter registration forms were mailed in July in hopes of a 5% (3,000+) return. As of December 1st, we safely registered over 5,500 voters. Of the 61,000 voter registration forms, 21% (12,810) registered and voted in the 2020 elections.
13 of our members were also registered Voter Deputy Registrars (VDRs) and volunteered in Travis County to increase in-person voter registration.
