The 3 things most needed NOW for the #2018elections

October 30th, 2018|Action of the Week|0 Comments

Today is the last day to register to vote (or update your registration) online or in person at your local County Clerk’s office in order to be eligible to vote in the 2018 Midterm election. Are you and the people around you registered? GOOD. Here’s what is most needed now:

#1. Knock on doors for a candidate. Elections sometimes come down to who can knock on more doors, and every day through election day matters for candidates. Door knocking at this stage in the race is mostly about making sure the people who already support your candidate actually cast their ballot. Volunteers are especially needed for close races. So pick a candidate you care about and lend a hand in the next week!

  • Join volunteers on the ground for your candidate now through Nov 6th. Find contact info and volunteer sign ups on your candidates’ campaign webpage.
  • Only have a day or two to spare? Saturday, November 3rd and Election Day on Tuesday, November 6th are the two most critical days when candidates need the most help.

#2. Make calls for a ballot initiative. Just like with candidates, getting the word out to voters to support an initiative you care about and making sure they cast a ballot matters.

  • Volunteer for a phone bank by signing up on your favorite ballot initiative’s webpage.
  • Join Action Utah at a Nov 1st phone bank for Prop 3: Utah Decides to expand Medicaid (5:30-8:30p) by emailing us. Or sign up for any other time slot that works for you here.

#3. VOTE. Vote by mail ballots must be postmarked by Monday, Nov 5th. Early Voting goes through Friday, November 2nd. Election Day voting is Tuesday, November 6th, and polls will be open from 7:00a through 8:00pm.

  • Make a plan to cast your ballot, including how, where and when you will vote. Plan ahead to make sure you can find the time to vote and ensure you have a ride to the polls or post box. Making a plan in advance means you’ll be more likely to cast your ballot and won’t miss the opportunity to get your voice heard.
