As part of a national civic engagement program sponsored by the Jewish Social Justice Rountable, JCA was proud to lead Trick or Vote, a Halloween volunteer effort to increase voter turnout and encourgage Minnesotans to vote against the two proposed constitutional amendments (voter restriction and anti same-sex marriage) that will appear on the ballot next Tuesday. The flyers provided non-partisan information about same-day voter registration and polling locations, as well as information about the amendments and the campaigns currently working to defeat them.
The flyers were also a great conversation-starter. As the election draws closer, we know that conversations are still the key to defeating the amendments. And the conversations are continuing back at the JCA office (obviously with the leftover spoils of Trick or Treating). We're phonebanking every day (except Saturday) between now and the election; visit our calendar to find a time slot that works for you.
