BREAKING: We Registered 4,500 Voters!

(Hay una traducción debajo de este mensaje.)

We have amazing news to share.

This summer, we set out to register just over 3,000 voters.

Now, with the final numbers in, we're thrilled to report that we registered…(drumroll please)…4,500!  

In short, we blew by our ambitious goals.  This is a testament to the hard work of our incredible fellows and our wonderful community volunteers.  Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you for being a part of this effort!

But our work is not done yet.  Election Day is only 23 days away, and research shows that, if we follow up with newly-registered voters with reminders to vote, they are much more likely to cast their ballots.  So we need your help to reach these 4,500 new voters with our Get Out the Vote effort so that your neighbors can make their voices heard in federal and state elections!  Can we count on you to volunteer or contribute to our effort?
