Get Ready to VOTE!

Hey, if you’re on the island this Saturday, come on down to Five Corners around noon! Bring friends! Bring signs supporting the candidates and issues that matter to you!

That morning, at 9:30 a.m., Howes House, West Tisbury, the MV Dems meeting will be devoted to actions we can take in the last weeks before the desperately important midterms. Phone-banking and canvassing are on the agenda, and I’ll be talking about writing postcards to voters, both as a long-term strategy and as something we can do right now. We’ve got a postcard campaign going for our wonderful state senator, Julian Cyr, who’s got a well-funded GOP opponent. All hands on deck!

And note these dates:

  • Massachusetts voter registration deadline: Wednesday, Oct. 17
  • Early voting: Oct. 22 to Nov. 2
  • ELECTION DAY: Nov. 6, 7 a.m.–8 p.m. Be there!
