Most of the items in this folder involve voter registration and precinct organizing for the Freedom Days of 1962 through the Democratic National Convention of 1964 and the Congressional Challenge in 1965. There's a paper on "How to Organize Your Community for the August 2nd [1962] Election"; memos on Freedom Days by Stokely Carmichael; meeting minutes and resolutions from various precinct meetings in Mississippi; memos regarding plans for the Democratic National Convention (1964); a memo from Student Voice offering sample posters, stickers, and flyers for the voter registration campaign. There's also a description of parliamentary procedure and instructions for leading precinct meetings, and a 1965 memo to COFO workers to come to a CORE-sponsored rally in Bogalusa, Louisiana.
