What you can do to get out the vote NOW!

Vote yourself! Be sure to check NC NOW PAC and NOW PAC’s endorsements at https://northcarolinanow.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/nc-national-organization-for-women-announces-general-election-endorsements/

Motivate others to vote! NC NOW set up phone banking opportunities this Tuesday and Thursday around the state. We have phone banking sites for this Tuesday, Oct 28, and Thursday, Oct 30, in 5 cities.

Over 100 thousand people voted on the first day of early voting in NC!! Fantastic!! A Charlotte TV station says people are “coming out in droves” to vote. Women have worked so hard to be able to vote, and this election is so utterly important, we want to do everything we can to ensure every NOW member votes!

To this end, NC NOW is coordinating phone banks of our members in 5 cities around NC. We are partnering with the Communications Workers of America to Get Out The Vote! National NOW started calling our NC member lists last week! We at NC NOW are continuing with calls to our members this week. You know how crucial this election is for women and the whole state. Plus calling with others is more fun!

We would like 3-5 people from NOW at each of these phone banks. Please tell me when and where you are planning to join in, so they know to expect us. Phone banks are scheduled in 3-4 hour shifts. Come for as much of a shift as you can. Come alone or bring a friend!

We are focusing on phone banking at union halls affiliated with the American
Federation of Labor (AFL-CIO). More dates are available if you prefer any other
day up to and including election day. Just call me!

Find an event and RSVP to me, Gailya Paliga, at president at raleighnow.org.
