Reclaim Our Vote/Church and Society
By Lisa Della Valle
Last month ROV Marin County wrote 8200 postcards to Georgia voters to
encourage voter registration and it was very effective. We sent 280 postcards!!
In May and June we are writing postcards to voters in Texas. Our target is disenfranchised African American and brown voters of color over age 65 to encourage them to register to vote by mail.
The vote by mail rules are very strict in Texas. For example, if someone misses just one election they are removed from the voter roll. They only know this if they go to the polling place - and they are then turned away. This is just another voter suppression strategy and we can't let that happen. Every one has a right to vote, and should be easy - not full of roadblocks.
Please contact me if you are interested in postcarding!
I have 20 packets available.
