Girl Scouts in an all-inclusive, non-partisan organization. Promise to Vote is a Girl Scout Service Project that is non-partisan. The purpose of the Promise to Vote Service Project is to raise awareness about the importance of voting and community involvement.
Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road proudly partners with the Kentucky Secretary of State's Office, the Kentucky League of Women Voters and the Kentucky's Historical Society to bring the Promise to Vote Program to Girl Scouts across the state!
Voting is the ultimate form of community activism, the message that voters give when casting a vote is, "I count and I can make a difference!" Young people can count, when the adults in their lives vote.
Voter Registration Awareness Weekend: September 25-27, 2020
Prior to Girl Scout Promise to Vote Day on October 24, 2020, GSKWR is pledging to assist Kentuckians in registering to vote. Girl Scouts are asked to sponsor a booth to encourage eligible adults to vote - this can be done virtually (tips and guidelines enclosed) or in-person (contingent upon Governor/Council COVID guidelines).

Promise to Vote Virtual Celebration November 5-7, 2020
Celebration your accomplishments with us! The Kentucky Historical Society will host a 3-day virtual event.
The purpose of the “Promise to Vote” campaign is two-fold. As a service project, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road wants to remind people to vote and attract more people to the polls. This service project also makes Girl scouts more visible in the community. The event has generated a lot of great media coverage over the years. Notify your local newspapers and television station about the project.
Patches may be purchased at your local Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road retail store. The patch is to be worn on the back of the vest.
