A little Austin weekend activism

You Austinites who don’t mind missing a little football have a GOTV opportunity this Sunday. Click the More link for more.

Thanks to your efforts, there are thousands of new registered voters in Travis County. Now we have to get them to the polls. Democracy for Texas is invading South Austin!

On Sunday, we’re taking on an area with a lot of new registered voters (east of I-35 between Ben White and 290). Many of these new voters don’t know where to vote or how to operate the voting machines, and early voting starts Monday. So we’re going to leaflet neighborhoods to give new folks just that kind of information, and also target people with a Democratic voting history. And in case anyone needs a reminder, we’re also going to tell them why they need to vote.

Where: Meet in the parking lot at 512 East Riverside (Glen Maxey’s office)

When: Sunday, October 17, 1:00 p.m.

How: We’ll head out in teams. If you’re by yourself, we’ll match you up with someone. No talking to voters, just leaving a leaflet at addresses on a list.

Please RSVP to [email protected] so we know how many packets to prepare.

Time commitment: We’d like to have 2-3 hours of your time, but if you can’t do it that long, come anyway. And if you can’t do it Sunday, but can do it another time, email [email protected]

There are plenty of things you could do on Sunday afternoon. Are any of them really more important than restoring democracy to Texas?

(Just in case you’re not sure, the Cowboys’ game doesn’t start until 3:15.)
