People’s Veto Effort Launched – We Need Your Help!!!
We need your help now. Â As the email below described, we are going to be working as part of a coalition to enact a Â people’s veto of the repeal of same day voter registration. Â We will be working to get this on the ballot this November. Â In order to do so, the coalition members have the goal of collecting 71,500 signatures by early August.
The signature-gathering process will begin this Saturday, the 9th. Â There is going to be a training at the offices of theÂ Maine People’s Alliance in Portland, at 565 Congress Street, Suite 200, on Saturday, July 9, at 9:00 AM. Â We would encourage everyone who is willing to volunteer and gather signatures to attempt to attend this training, to insure that everything is done properly. Â Petitions will be ready, available and distributed at this meeting. Â If you are unable to attend the training and are willing to volunteer to gather even a few signatures, please let me know and we’ll make arrangements to get petitions to you. Â We encourage you to volunteer, even a couple of hours…Every signature that you gather gets us closer to our goal.
We are in the process of identifying coordinators for the various communities. Â If you have an interest in helping coordinate the process, please let us know. Â We’ll provide you with the list of coordinators for the various communities in the counties in a few days.
Please email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Â Thanks for your willingness to help in this critical effort. Â We’re looking forward to working with you!!Â
