Even in this climate of the coronavirus pandemic, natural disasters, and rampant voter suppression, voters are poised to turn out to vote in historic numbers. But, with the new safe voting options we have won in many places, combined with opposition attempts to sow disinformation and chaos, Americans across the country need access to good information from leaders and organizations they trust. This is a critically important time for your members to hear from you.
We are asking the leaders of all DI partners to create a simple video with key voter education information and share it with your supporters. To help make that easy, DI staff have created a simple toolkit with everything you need to make and share a great video message.
We've included video instructions, a sample script, and talking points to streamline this process, as well as sample emails and social media posts to help get this information into the hands of your members.
For democracy to work for all of us, it must include all of us. Every vote counts and every vote must be counted.
We make change when we join together. We march. We organize. We make a plan to vote—as early as possible, by mail or safely in person. And. In. Record. Numbers.
We will demand that every vote be counted. Mail ballots can take longer to count, so it's important to be patient while all the votes are counted and stay vigilant right up to when newly elected leaders are sworn in.
The Make a Plan Video Toolkit is designed to help you get this message out to your members, supporters and followers by making a simple video encouraging them to be intentional and early voters and patient for the results.
