Democratic Justice Team
Our UU the Vote effort with Kentuckians for the Commonwealth was a great success: 5 Voter Registration phonebanks, 3 Voter Mobilization phonebanks, dozens of volunteers and thousands of calls made.
If you haven't gotten enough phonebanking, you have one more chance. The Voting Rights Campaign is having one last big phone bank Saturday, Oct. 31, 12-3pm ET (11-2pm CT) to let people with felonies in their past know they can vote this election. KUUJAN is one of the co-sponsors. Register here. Here are the details:
We won the right to vote for 170,000 people with felonies in their past. The problem is that the state of Kentucky never let them know they can vote. Throughout the year, we’ve spread the word and helped people register. The registration deadline has passed, but this weekend we're calling people who are registered to vote (often from long ago) and who did get their right to vote back, but who might not know they can vote in this election.
We'll start with a brief online training at noon and make calls until 3pm ET, but the campaign will stay open through November 3rd, so you can keep calling.
Register here for this special phonebank!
After the election, the Democratic Justice Team shifts from UU the Vote to issues such as gerrymandering and redistricting, expanding early voting in Kentucky, and more. They meet on the fourth Monday of every month at 6pm CT (7pm ET). Watch our website for details.
