King County Elections has created this social media toolkit to support voter education and outreach in the community.

This social media toolkit includes suggested posts and accompanying images for your organization to use and adapt to help get people registered and voting. Posts can be modified and customized to fit your organization’s needs, but we recommend that you always tag us in the images and provide a link to our website.

New to social media? Check out our tips for new users to get you started.
