NASW urges social workers to vote


The National Association of Social Workers has a tool on our web site that helps people find their candidates and connects them to the agency in their jurisdiction to register to vote. Each state, the District of Columbia and territories have different rules around voter registration. NASW encourages all social workers to register and vote. As the 2016 election approaches, we will be endorsing candidates for election. As a member, you can socialworkers.org view our past endorsements.
