Turning Out the Black Vote
Voter suppression has reared its ugly head in 2016. The Crosscheck system may disenfranchise nearly 1.7 million African American and Latino voters, localities are closing polls with almost no notice and in many states Photo ID is still the law of the land.
That's why we have partnered with People Demanding Action and the Virginia State Conference of the NAACP to make sure that voters who want to vote have a way to get to the polls. The most consistent voters are older voters and many no longer drive. We are recruiting drivers to drive not only on election day but before the election to help people get their Photo ID.
The NAACP needs to call more than 250,000 inconsistent voters in Virginia to make sure that they a) plan to vote, b) have a ride to the polls and c) tell us what is important to them. Engaged people always vote.
And finally, if you know anyone that needs a ride to the polls, let us know and we'll make sure a free ride, round-trip is available for them.
