We introduced Promote the Vote 2022 last Thursday, and today we have Talyce Murray with us tonight to tell us more about the coalition and to answer questions.
November is coming up fast!
Promote the Vote 2022 is a Michigan group working to make elections more fair, more secure, more convenient, and more accessible. For everyone!
Promote the Vote is a Michigan-based coalition of organization and individuals fighting to protect the vote in that critical state. These organizations have a track-record of success. In 2018, they worked together to pass one ballot initiative that provided equal access to absentee voting and Election Day registration and another ballot initiative that established Michigan’s Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.
Promote the Vote 2022 has carefully-drafted a new ballot initiative to amend the Michigan Constitution to ensure all voters in Michigan can make their voice heard and that their votes are counted. They need enough signatures to qualify for the Ballot by July, and they need boots on the ground to promote the initiative in advance of the November election, assuming they get enough signatures to qualify.
If it passes, we can worry a lot less about election subversion in Michigan. And the people in Michigan will have elections that are more fair, more secure, more convenient, and more accessible. For everyone!
Here’s where we come in.
In keeping with our goal of supporting boots on the ground organizations – particularly those who direct their efforts to underserved communities – we want to raise $25,000 for an outreach project targeted toward underserved communities.
Here’s the post from Thursday, in case you missed it!
Talyce will be here with us for about 90 minutes on this thread tonight.
