No longer will we sit back to watch this unfold.  We know people!  And each one of us will be responsible for making sure that OUR PEOPLE VOTE in November.

Let's each take it upon ourselves to ensure that family, friends, coworkers and acquaintances MAIL IN BALLOTS or GO TO THE POLLS on November 6th.

Make a list of 15 people in your life.

Let them know that you are going to CHECK IN WITH THEM

Call again
...Drive them to the post office
or to the polls!

Just think about it...isn't it time you spoke with with your best friend from high school?  Your old boss?  What does your mom think about the state of things?  This is a great opportunity to reconnect with the folks in your life.  All of us here at D3 Indivisible Colorado are playing...won't you join us?  The power of connection.  It's so simple.

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.

IT'S TIME!

Tuesday's D3 Daily Action: Participate In National Voter Registration Day

D3 will be hosting a Voter Registration event at Cimarron Coffee in Ridgway from 9am-Noon. Please come by!

ABOUT NATIONAL VOTER REGISTRATION DAY

National Voter Registration Day is a national holiday celebrating our democracy. It was first observed in 2012 and has been growing in popularity every year since. Held on the fourth Tuesday of September, National Voter Registration Day will be observed on Tuesday, September 26th this year. The holiday has been endorsed by the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS). It is further supported by the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED).

What It’s About

Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register. National Voter Registration Day wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote. On Tuesday September 26, 2017 volunteers and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” in a single day of coordinated field, technology and media efforts. National Voter Registration Day seeks to create broad awareness of voter registration opportunities to reach tens of thousands of voters who may not register otherwise.

What It Involves

  • Volunteers in their community or workplace, at schools or public events, or anywhere we can register people to vote.
  • Technology to help voters find registration drives nearby and register to vote online.
  • Local organizations, businesses and election offices engaged in their own communities.
  • Tens of thousands of voters registering to vote online and offline in a single day.

What It Will Accomplish

  • Registering Voters: In 2016 over 750,000 voters used National Voter Registration Day to register to vote across all 50 states.
  • Mobilizing Volunteers: Each year the holiday’s growing number of local partners engage upwards to 10,000 local volunteers.
  • Educating Voters: Millions of voters need to register and re-register every year. By utilizing new technology and leveraging partners, we’ll educate Americans in all 50 states about how to register, sign up for election reminders, check their registration online, get mail ballots, learn about early voting and more.
  • Uniting for a Common Purpose: National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity. It’s an opportunity to set aside differences and celebrate democracy and the rights and opportunities we all share as Americans.
