Thank you, Greater Indianapolis NAACP
Thank you to everyone who exercised their right to vote in this year's election, ensuring our community has a say in how our government operates.

Thank you to our volunteers who made calls to voters through the Indianapolis NAACP virtual phone bank. Our local phone bank volunteers made more than 4,250 phone calls in Marion County, reaching voters in targeted African American precincts with historically low voter turnout. These conversations helped encourage infrequent African American voters to exercise their right to vote in the 2020 election.
Thank you to our Election Day volunteers, who monitored 45 vote centers in Marion County's African American neighborhoods to make sure voters' rights were protected. We notified county officials when vote centers were not open on time. When some vote centers ran out of forms needed to allow voters to cast their ballots, we printed and delivered those forms. When machines broke down or other problems arose, we communicated with officials in the Marion County clerk's office and Marion County Election Board to make sure machines were fixed.
Thank you to our voter protection legal team, who helped advise voters and vote center officials about the law throughout the day, ensuring everyone could exercise their right to vote.
Our Election Day command center was staffed by a crew of local NAACP volunteers (shown below), who worked throughout the day in a safe, socially distanced environment at the Julia Carson Government Center. They truly made a difference.
