Contact every family member and friend you have in Michigan who you think might not yet have voted. Remind them of the importance of this election! Remind them of what it took to get the vote, so if they have to stand in line, so be it, however long it takes. As long as they are in line, they get to vote!
Share this chart with them to help them sort out their situation and/or have them pass it on to others. Share with them the websites michigan.gov/vote
and centralvotes.org to find information about voting, as well as vote411.org for information about candidates.
If every one of us were to contact ten people, think about the impact that would have! Now’s the time; let’s do it!
If you mailed in your absentee ballot, be sure to check if it has been received by going to your voter registration page at www.michigan.gov/vote. If there is no indication that it has been received, call your clerk’s office now to determine how you can yet vote in person if necessary. You can find your clerk’s office and phone number, also at www.michigan.gov/vote.
Make a phone call to every family member and friend you have in Michigan and engage them in a conversation about voting. If they are not registered to vote, do they know how they can yet register? What’s their plan to vote? Do they know where to drop off their absentee ballot? Do they know how to track their ballot? Do they know how to early in person absentee vote? Share with them the websites www.michigan.gov/vote and centralvotes.org to find information about voting, as well as www.vote411.org for information about candidates. You can also share how your values help you make your decisions about your votes.
In preparation for the Tuesday, November 3 ballot, Sara Prussing has created a document describing each candidate’s public stance on environmental issues. Information was gathered from candidates’ websites and Vote411.org, and has been approved by the Environmental Issues committee. Please use this and share it with others!
