Helping others to vote
It’s vitally important that we help others with voting on November 3, 2020. One resource is Map The Vote. Click on the following link to be taken there to find out how you can help: https://mapthe.vote where you will be taken to a page that outlines the process and asked you to login. Clicking the Login button (it’s at the top of the page) asks for your email. If this is your first time then you will be asked to create your login information consisting of name, address, phone number and password. Once you’ve done that you will be presented a map of where you live with green markers showing who has not been contacted. When you click on a green marker you will be presented with a dialog that shows the address and several options, including a script to use while contacting the people at this address. Once completed you will be asked how it went.
