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 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. You'll find all downloadable graphics and photos at King County Elections page on Flickr . Feel free to use whatever you'd like, all we ask is that you provide credit and tag @kcelections in your photo or post. 

Check back regularly both here and on Flickr for updated content and graphics! And be sure to use the following hashtags with your posts: #hit90 #kcvotes
