I normally do not like to be overtly political – but with this coming election in the US.we are having quite possibly the most important election in our history. We have a clear choice between 4 more of the last 8 years or a change that we desperately need.
I encourage every US citizen on this email list to not only do their civic duty and vote this coming election, but to also help register others to vote. Here is a simple thing that each of you can do.
A. Volunteer for a campaign and/or
B. Go to your local library or post office and get a large handful of
voter registration packets (they’re free and small) – and:
C. Follow my simple example: My story – whenever I go shopping, go to the bank, go get sandwiches etc. there are always young people who are the customer service people helping me. And so I bring my registration packets with me and ask them if they are registered to vote. Usually they are not. I then hand them a voter registration packet and explain to them the simple registration process – it is only 1 page long and literally takes 45 seconds to fill out. Normally they are quite happy that an “adult” has gotten involved and talked to them about this for most do not know what to do.
I also have created a “One sheet” which shows where McCain and Obama stand on the issues and I hand this out along with the packets for most young people typically do not know much about the candidates. If you would like me to email you the one sheet, please individually let me know and I would be happy to email you it.
I challenge each of you to get 10 young people to register to vote!
Thanks and regards!
