APRIL 28- The Get Out the Vote event will meet at Ryan Bonaminio Park, 5000 Tequesquite Ave., Riverside. Even if you can’t participate, you can contribute to the effort to set the next Blue Wave in motion by dropping off water and/or snacks for those who are walking!
Join us in walking in support of an amazing candidate! Erin Edwards has extensive experience working for and with non-profit organizations to alleviate homelessness, help children in the foster care system, and feed the hungry. She’s been endorsed by Democrats of Greater Riverside, the Riverside County Democratic Party, Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, and many others.
The location changes daily so please contact Angela Barnes @ 909-991-5677 to find out where to meet. Don’t forget sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and water.
We’ll be knocking on doors of area Democrats asking them to help us Get Out The Vote! How can they help? By calling or texting their neighbors with reminders to vote, collecting mail-in ballots (with a receipt procedure), and, of course, volunteering on campaigns!
Why are we doing this now? 2020 isn’t all that far away and we need to start working to get folks registered and willing to vote.
It’s going to be hot so please bring sunscreen, water, and a hat. At the meeting point you’ll receive thorough instructions and a list of addresses of local registered Democrats you’ll be visiting.
