Other than posting/providing good factual information about voting (when/what/how/where to vote), I don't think it's government's job to "get out the vote" for elections. That's the job of the candidates and the parties. N.B. When you're the umpire of the game you shouldn't also be a cheerleader and helping out the booster club.
