Friday's D3 Action
Help Your New D3 Friends Register to VOTE at Local Community Events
Make a list of events or locations in your community between now and October 15th where your D3 organization will register folks to vote (October 15th is the last day you can register people to vote in a drive via a paper application, but people can still register online up until election day).
Check your community calendar to get ideas! Think outside of the box ~ what about back to school night, restaurants, rodeos, music events, fundraisers, bars, local meetings, etc.?
We encourage you to pick at least five events! More is better, of course! And think about places where 18-37 year olds might be ~ we need them! And think especially about events where there might be people who are NOT already registered. If you know that all of your friends are registered to vote...make some new friends! And pick a place where you might meet new people.
It's easy to certify your organization with the Colorado Secretary of State to hold your own Voter Registration Drive:
You only need one person to be the name on the application. The Secretary of State is very helpful and will supply you with all of the materials you need. We advise you sign your organization up using the name D3 + your town or county name (i.e. our local registration is under D3 Ouray County). Then we will all be grouped together on their official list of registrants.
And of course, all you really need is a laptop, and anyone with a valid Driver's License or ID card can Register to Vote Online.
Please share your ideas with us! And let us know how D3 Colorado can support your efforts.
