I am part of Action In Montgomery, a group that ____________________________ (your congregation/school/etc.) is involved with, and I’m doing Get Out The Vote for the primary election.
Are you planning to vote in the primary in June?
Is there an issue you want to vote on in the election? Why? Does it affect you personally?
I’m getting involved in this election because . . . (speak personally about why voting is important to you, or an issue from the AIM agenda that is particularly important to you in this election).
We’re working to make the candidates accountable to us and the issues we think are most important in this election. We’re signing up 10,000 people to vote in the primary and to send a message to our elected officials that this election is about protecting immigrant families, making housing affordable for young adults, families and seniors, and quality education for all students. Are any of these issues important to you? Why?
Will you commit to voting in the primary, and to signing up to vote with the AIM issues? This means that when you choose who to vote for, these are some of the issues you will consider before you vote.
Would you like to come see the candidates for County Executive answer to the AIM agenda on May 31?
[If they seem very interested, ask them if they want to make this election more meaningful by signing up people to vote like you are].
Thank them for their time and interest.
