Volunteers Needed to Protect Maine Votes
For 38 years, Maine citizens have been able to register and vote on Election Day. We have one of the highest rates of voter turnout in the country. Unfortunately, the 2011 Maine Legislature passed a law that bans Election Day registration, making it more difficult for Maine people to exercise our right to vote. Join us in the fight to Protect Maine Votes.
Volunteers across Maine are collecting signatures for a people’s veto of the new law. And thousands of Maine people have already signed the petition. We’ve secure more than 1,200 signatures in Sagadahoc county (where Representatives Kim Olsen and Kerri Prescott voted with their party to end Election Day registration).
Join us in the final push to collect another 500 signatures before August 2.
Sagadahoc County Democrats will be circulating petitions at Richmond Days from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, July 30. We are looking for volunteers to staff our booth or walk the crowd collecting signatures. The two-hour shift will fly by! It is fun. People are receptive. It is important.
For more information or to volunteer, please contact Bronwen Tudor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring the family, enjoy the fun, and Protect Maine Votes.
