The deadline to register to vote in Massachusetts is coming up on October 17th! The health of our democracy and our neighborhoods depends on active voter and civic participation. Still, millions of Americans, especially our poorest and sickest neighbors, lack a voice in our democracy.
Join your Tufts classmates by volunteering in upcoming voter registration drives:
Tues Oct. 9th and Tues. Oct 16th.
2 shifts each day: 11:30am-1:00pm, and 4:30pm-6:00pm.
8 people per shift (you will be working in pairs)
Please sign up on this Google Doc:
We will be working in the Chinatown community (likely near the Boylston T stop and the Chinatown Gate), and will directly register new voters on the spot! We will be supported and working alongside volunteers from the non-partisan local group, MassVOTE. (check them out!: massvote.org). ***If you have any Chinese language skills, your help will be especially appreciated!***
Any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is sponsored and organized by RxDemocracy!
