"Buzz right out of your hive."
Ballots have gone out in the mail. You probably talk about the election to friends and acquaintances in your normal rounds or circles. If you were a bee, they’d be called your “hive.”
But it’s imperative to build the buzz to reach all voters, particularly ones that may not be in your day-to-day contacts. Try these simple techniques to make your voice heard.
· Add a sentence under your email signature about your position on issues 60, 61, and 101, the “Bad 3.”
· Send email messages directly to friends and acquaintances with your position.
· Challenge yourself to communicate with several people a day until the election.
· Network: ask others to forward short emails or mail cards to their contacts if they agree with you.
· Keep cards or flyers handy to distribute as needed.
The Bell Policy Institute has compiled a list of tools for evaluating the statewide amendments and propositions. The ballot guide has a summary of all amendments and propositions. A video on the “Bad 3” is available in English and Spanish.
