Monday Morning News Special Call To Action Apr. 28, 2016

First, thank you for all that you have done to assist our endorsed and supported candidates.
We are in the final stretch of this election, but there is something else you can do to help on election day, Tuesday May 3rd!
In past years, we have had volunteers staff what we call "point of sale" at key precincts in the county.

Some voters may only be thinking about voting in the Presidential primary and don't have enough information about our local candidates.
Or, they may not have made up their mind yet about how they will vote for a specific local office. We can help!

We have some beautiful 1/4-size information sheets for volunteers to distribute at the busiest precincts on Tuesday May 3rd!

We will focus on the 7-9 am, 11 am- 1pm and 4-6 pm time slots, although other times are available.

Contact Julie at [email protected] as soon as possible to reserve your spot!
Thank you for helping our endorsed and supported candidates!
