The Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act includes $3.6 billion for state and local governments to make their election systems safe for voters and poll workers under pandemic conditions – obtaining supplies and training.Your Voting Rights committee encourages you to contact your Senators (Stabenow and Peters) asking for their support for the Act.
If you would like to get more involved with encouraging voting rights for our congregation and beyond, contact David Wagstaff at 610-220-3359 by phone or text. We could always use more voices and hands.
Given that the absent voter ballots for Michigan have now been printed and will be sent out on June 25, we are encouraging you to request your ballot now. If you yet haven’t received an application to request the ballot, you can easily do that yourself at www.Michigan.gov/vote. In fact, you can now apply for it online! As well, when you fill out your request, you can indicate that you would like to receive the ballot for both the August 4 state election and the November 3 general election this year, and/or indicate that you would like to be placed on the permanent list, automatically receiving an application for every election. If you have questions, feel free to contact Norma Bailey or David Wagstaff.
