For every county in Florida we need at least one and in some areas more voter guide “County Hub Captains.” The Captains take charge of organizing the distribution of voter guides to various churches.

Hosts are either churches or businesses that will serve as a storage place for multiple boxes of voter guides to be distributed in your county. The requirements for a host is to have space of about the size of a small bathroom to store the boxes in, regular office hours for churches and groups picking up the guides to come by and receive them, and someone to dispense the voter guides when someone comes to get them. Commitment level is use of a room to house voter guides till election is over. To volunteer to be a voter guide Hub Location in your county contact [email protected]
