Adult students at California’s library literacy programs have long been some of our most valued co-creators and collaborators in designing accessible nonpartisan election information, such as the Easy Voter Guide. Last year, the California State Library supported a refresh of the Key to Community Voter Engagement Project. Adult learner leaders from around the state came to Sacramento to be trained to deliver in-person voting workshops for the March 2020 Primary, alongside literacy program staff. The workshops were a success, and the team was proud of how they demonstrated that nonpartisan peer-to-peer education increased participation among those less likely to vote.
