KFTC registers 4,814 voters!
With voter registration drives in our 13 chapters across the state, Kentuckians For The Commonwealth has worked hard leading up to the Oct 9th voter registration deadline. We’ve held voter registration events in chapters across the state – from our very newest chapter in Danville registering 68 voters over a 3-day period – to the Jefferson chapter that brought in close to 1,400.
We tabled at dozens of community festivals and events in eastern and northern Kentucky, ran many door-to-door canvases in low-income communities, held a few heavy-hitting campus registration drives at EKU, WKU, UofL and UK, and in general did a great job of getting out and reaching people in communities that need to be heard louder in our democracy. Leading up to the deadline, we even held 36- and 48-hour-straight voter registration marathons in Lexington and Louisville, respectively!
In all, hundreds of volunteers managed to register 4,814 voters total – and also spread a lot of key information to get other ready and motivated to vote.
But our work doesn’t stop with voter registration...
We’re now in the process of spreading key information about candidates through our Voter Guides and www.KentuckyElection.org – helping people to cast an informed vote on Election Day. In all, we're printing 23,267 Voter Guides and we expect more than 34,000 pageviews on KentuckyElection.org.
And after that, we’ll focus on mobilizing people to actually get out and vote – by calling them and reminding them, offering rides to the polls, walking door-to-door, holding signs, and even running sound cars on Election Day.
And we need YOUR help to do that.
So please contact your local organizer to see how you can pitch in to mobilize the vote on Election Day.
We have 3 weeks left. Let's make them count.
