Reclaim Our Vote: postcard & phone bank to stop voter suppression

August 10, 2019

When

Saturday, August 10, 2019
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The goal of Reclaim Our Vote-Mid-Peninsula is to increase voter participation among disenfranchised persons of color. At this postcard party in Menlo Park, we’ll write to voters of color who have been, or are at risk of being, de-registered in voter-suppression states like Virginia and North Carolina.

For location and more information, please email Elsa at elsaschafer@comcast.net

We write people in rural areas who are too far apart to canvass, and phone everyone whose name appears on an Election Office Registrar’s list as being taken off the voter rolls.

There is a special Congressional election for which early voting starts August 21st in North Carolina, and the entire Virginia State Chambers are elected November 5th in this odd election year. We’re focusing on voter registration until the middle of August, and then will switch to GOTV for the North Carolina election, then the Virginia elections through November 5th.
