Scott County Voter Mobilization Update

gDSC_0403Last night, Scott County KFTC and NAACP members called through the last of the people in our database, plus much of the Ed Davis precint's registered voters – about 200 people called in all. 

Thinking through the impact of Scott County's Voter Empowerment work in 2012, Rosanne Fitts Klarer said:

"I think we're creating a positive buzz – making a space for people to get engaged in politics. It brought it home for people. It's about connecting people to real issues and not just sound bytes and it's rare for people to otherwise have information to cast an informed vote on local races. I also think it's great that we can take today to celebrate voting as a key part of our Democracy. Some people think Democracy happens on it's own. It doesn't. But we're making it happen."
