MORE POSTCARDS TO WRITE We’re on a roll! In June, UUCA volunteers wrote 1,000 postcards, joining our partners Forward Together, Reclaim Our Vote and the NAACP in reaching out to 8,000 disenfranchised NC voters, encouraging them to confirm their voter registration status in preparation for the 2020 election. In July we plan to double our efforts with a goal of sending 2,000 postcards to residents of our own WNC region. All supplies and clear instructions will be provided for this justice-driven home-based activity. Email Amy Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up.
POLL WORKERS NEEDED FOR THE FALL Even without the pandemic, Election Services in all counties would be looking for Election Day and Early Voting workers for the fall general election. However, the need to recruit additional poll workers, especially younger people, is critical now. These are paid positions! In Buncombe County, apply here or call 250-4226 for details. For poll worker information in other NC counties, check here. Please get the word out to anyone you believe would be interested.
BE SURE YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE. Visit the new Online Voter Registration Tool, from UU North Carolina partner You Can Vote, for a one-stop place to verify and update your registration status and download and complete a paper registration application as needed.
