November 2, 2021:
Today, November 2nd, is municipal Election Day in 55 Massachusetts cities. That means, if you live in a city, then you have an election. So today, our message is clear: get out and VOTE!
We have been spreading this message on the ground and in the airwaves. This past weekend, we joined both advocates and legislators to get out the vote in Boston's Black community. We organized dozens of volunteers, passed out lawn signs, and knocked on thousands of doors in neighborhoods like Dorchester, Mattapan, and Hyde Park. You can read more about it in the Boston Globe.
Today, we are making one final push to get out the vote. We have been at the NAACP Boston Branch HQ since 9:30 AM, and will be there until 9 PM, to launch and monitor all operations. This includes phone banking from up until the polls close at 8 PM. If you want to join us, simply reply to this email, or contact us at email@example.com.
Finally, if you or someone you know does not plan to vote today, we encourage you to think again. As our recent opinion piece in the Worcester Telegram notes, far too much is on the line each local election to simply sit them out. So get out and VOTE!
Polls close at 8 PM. What are you waiting for?
