Meetup & Get to the Polls

We’re happy to announce that we’ve joined forces with The Pew Charitable Trusts’ Voting Information Project and The Internet Association to help voters Get to the Polls on November 4th for the U.S. Midterm Elections. The Get to the Polls site provides voters with a simple, central location to find everything they need to make an informed decision on Election Day. By entering their residential information, voters will be able to find their polling place address, hours of operation, and full ballot summary with just a few easy clicks.

At Meetup, we’re setting out to make local community real. We believe that everyone should have a voice in their community, and voting is one of the most important ways to make that voice heard. Through Meetup, people come together to make their communities stronger, healthier, happier places, and choosing our elected officials is an important part of ensuring those communities continue to thrive. Creating the communities we want to live in is important work, and it’s up to all of us to do it together. Voting is a critical piece of that work, and we’re thrilled to see Get to the Polls making it easier than ever. If you’re a United States citizen, make sure to check it out, and on November 4th, don’t forget to vote.

Building community,
one conversation at a time

There’s something powerful about people meeting up to talk about what’s important to them. Communication builds community, and that’s what Meetups are all about.

That’s why we’ve built a better way to stay connected—our new Messages feature for Meetup on iOS, Android and the web.

Now it’s easy to reach out to anyone in your communities between those times you’re meeting face to face.

From one-on-one chats to private small group conversations, we want to help make your Meetup connections stronger.

Keep talking. Get the app.
