Are you worried about the future of this country?
Are you looking for a way to channel your anger into action?
Have you been wanting to help but you are not sure what to do?
Progressive Yamhill as partnered with local organizations to coordinate an entire days worth of voter outreach activities on October 20, 2018.
If you have told yourself that you will get active, now is the time!!
This next month is EVERYTHING. JOIN US at one of multiple opportunities on a single day to get out and ask your neighbors to vote. Over one quarter of registered voters failed to return a ballot in the last midterm election… let’s do better.
Meet the candidate, get a quick canvassing training, then get paired with a buddy and go knock doors to ask registered voters to commit to turn their ballots in! Bring: a friend, comfortable walking shoes, and your friendly smile!
9am – McMinnville, Discovery Park, Parents & Politics Party (with childcare!)
We will provide some childcare, snacks and coffee. Adults can meet a few candidates and connect over what matters in our community and world. Ask questions about this year’s ballot measures, and be political while the kids slide and play. Bring: your voters pamphlet and your questions!
Help get postcards ready to mail on behalf of Sarah Grider, running for State Senate District 13 against Senator Kim Thatcher. Meet your neighbors, have some snacks, and write a few encouraging notes to voters in the Newberg area. Bring: your favorite pen.
Wrap up the day with pizza and sodas and a few phone calls to local voters asking for a ‘NO’ vote on Measure 105. Bring: Your laptop, your cell phone, headphones, and your cheerful friendly self!
And at 11 take a break and join the McMinnville Grizzlies in their World Record Attempt!
Can’t make it on the 20th? It’s not too late to ask your neighbors to vote with the Neighborhood Leader program.
Years from now, when you’re telling stories to your grandkids, you’ll be able to tell one about how YOU were part of turning this country around.
