Neighbors don’t let neighbors skip voting – especially when the survival of the middle class is at stake.
That’s the heart of Livingston County Democrats’ Neighbor to Neighbor Program that we are kicking off with training programs in June.
In non-presidential election years, tens of thousands of Michigan Democrats don’t vote. The problem is getting worse, not better, and it’s why we haven’t won the governor’s office and have lost the U.S. House.
Our Neighbor-to-Neighbor program tackles this problem by asking precinct delegates and other volunteers to send special letters to a carefully selected list of voters in their area who voted in the 2016 election but not in the 2014 election.
The party will provide a list of names and address, copies of the letter, envelopes, and stamps (if desired). Similar appeals have worked in other areas to greatly increase turnout among this group of Democrats.
Please help us reach these voters in a personal way. Sign up for a training either on Saturday, June 23, at 10 a.m., or Tuesday, June 26, at 7 p.m. Both will be at party headquarters, 8028 Grand River, Woodland Plaza Suite 7, Brighton. Each training is limited to 40 people. Email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate which training you will attend.
Signing up ahead of time is important so that we may carefully select a list of voters for you to contact.
The training is designed for precinct delegates and those running for precinct delegate in August, but other volunteers are welcome.
When Democrats vote, Democrats win. Let’s make sure Democrats in Livingston County vote!
