Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,
Hello, Idaho, it’s Gini Ballou, President of the Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus. Early voting is open! Why worry about Election Day lines? Get to your county election office and vote NOW! Women fought and fought hard for our right to vote. My own mother stopped on her way to the hospital to have me to vote for JFK, so there is no excuse for not getting your vote in!
We are running into full-swing campaign season and it’s time for all hands on deck! Every campaign needs volunteers, donations of time and talent, so pick the ones that matter most to you and give generously!
Have you been watching the debates? Our Democratic candidates have been outstanding—speaking about issues, keeping on point and holding their opponents accountable for their records, promises and failures. From the top of the ticket to our local forums, Democratic candidates have been on fire! Join some friends or go to your local Democratic HQ and cheer together.
Like our candidates, I have been making tracks around the state—Twin Falls via Pocatello was a great morning drive. But the enthusiasm and support from citizens everywhere makes every mile worthwhile. We had twenty people show up braving the 30 mph wind gusts in Twin to learn more about our leaders and get information on Prop 2. We handed out 20 Kristin Collum for Lt. Governor yard signs and over 25 Paulette Jordan for Governor signs! Up north, our Regional Directors report backyard parties, door knocking events and parades. People are ready for our Blue Wave!
With all the great events our candidates are generating, we have some fantastic growth around the state. We welcome our newest county organization, the Camas County Democrats and chair, Sherrie Gregory! Sherrie attended the IDP Convention in June and after a bit of encouragement at a D26 House Party, she took on the leadership and I know will do a great job bringing balance and options to Fairfield and Camas County residents.
Another trend is new voters, those that have never been registered and those that just stopped showing up. In Jerome we have volunteers going out every night and talking about our candidates, registering voters and making sure folks know where to vote. Candidates have been canvassing their Districts multiple times and we are hearing how it’s making a difference to voters. In my rounds, I spoke with a young woman I’ve known since she was a teenager. She’s an outspoken, generous person that speaks freely of her addiction recovery and participates in all manner of good works in our communities. And yet to my surprise, at 33 she had never voted—until last week! Never discount the impact YOU can make when you take the time to talk with your neighbors!
Get to the polls and vote because your vote matters.
Make a commitment today to join the Idaho Democratic Women's Caucus if you are not already a member or need to renew your membership again if it has expired. Friends like you help support our efforts in electing female leaders across the state to public office.
