2018 Election Season Social Media Materials

As elections season continues, we’ll continue to roll out new content, and will be updating this resource accordingly. Bookmark this page and check back often!

 

Join us in getting out the vote on social media this election season! Below, find sample posts and graphics for you to use leading up to election day. You may also use all the photos on the LWV Flickr site.  

Please feel free to tailor these messages to fit the elections in your community, as well as to promote the specific activities your League is carrying out this election season. 

In addition to this content, share information about the elections events you’ll be hosting. Don’t forget to take photos of your events and use those in your posts as well!

 

Sample Posts

Note: Hashtags help your content enter into larger conversations and garner visibility. Hashtags are most successful on Twitter, and should be used sparingly on Facebook. You should use any of the following popular hashtags: #GOTV, #iVoted, #Election2018, #BeAVoter—and tag @LWV and @VOTE411!

You should also use local hashtags specific to your state or community’s elections. For example, #FlaPol or #CAvote. Look on Twitter to see what other folks in your state or area are using!
