As we said, block walking may be difficult for people with disabilities. Beginning in early October texting 5 people you know with information on Voter Registration, BBM, Early Voting, and Election Day. Do this 3 times a week. Ask each of the 5 people to ask their 5 people to text the same information. And on and on…
You can post GET OUT THE DISABILITY VOTE information on your Facebook page at least weekly.
It is important to tell folks their VOTE COUNTS!
