ONLINE – Muster Monday — Minuteman Indivisible Activism
June 8, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for our Muster Together @ Home Monday, June 8th. to catch up on the latest activities to support our 2020 candidates and do a little progressive socializing, but at home on Zoom instead of at First Parish. Zoom link will be provided in the confirmation email.
We’re also starting a new Vote-By-Mail (VBM) campaign in Florida and we’ll begin writing postcards at the meeting. After completing a very successful postcard program for the Democratic Party of Sarasota Florida, volunteers will move to assist Manatee county. Research done on the Sarasota County effort showed terrific success in converting regular registered voters to VBM voters. The conversion is important because voters who register to submit a ballot by mail actually submit a ballot at a rate 50% higher than persons who intend to go to the polling place. Since Florida is a battleground state we are we are fighting for the electoral college votes, finding sufficient volunteers to expand this program into additional counties is critical.
If you are going to write postcards, please pick up a packet before the meeting. (All packets are super sanitized.) Packets are on Michelle Olson’s super-sanitized front porch and will be ready Wednesday afternoon June 3. You can pick them up until 5 PM on June 8:
Location: (address provided in confirmation email). When: Daily, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Note: If you are coming Wednesday, please call Jean at 508-358-2563 to make sure they are ready. Fee: $20 to cover materials – leave in container provided (Cash preferred or check made to Jean Milburn).
Note: If you need help getting a package, please contact Jean at 508 358 2563.
MORE ABOUT THE FLORIDA VOTE BY MAIL PROJECT: You’ll personalize and address official FL Dem Party pre-printed postcards to likely Democrats, telling them how to request a Vote By Mail ballot. Just pick up your packet which includes 20 postcards, addresses and stamps, then customize and mail the postcards from your home. The packets of materials for Manatee County are slightly different. Research indicates that voters respond much better than anticipated to the addition of a stamp on the return card. So, stamps will be affixed to both the outgoing and return halves of the double postcard. The packets will contain 20 postcards, 40 stamps and all other required materials. The donation for materials cost is $20.00
