Charles Booker Town Hall is TONIGHT Online (4/28)

Right now, 182 KFTC members and friends are signed up to come to tonight's Town Hall meeting with Representative Charles Booker, who's running for US Senate.   In this moment, it's clearer than ever Kentuckians need leaders who share our values and put the wellbeing of our communities–no matter the color of our skin or how much money we have–above all else.   With this momentum, electing our vision feels more possible than ever, but it's going to take all of us to get us there.

There's still time to signup and invite your friends to join us too.

At the town hall, we’ll gather together online to hear his story, ask him questions, and find out how we as KFTC members can take action to make a real difference in the June primary, even as we practice social distancing and work to keep our communities safe. Registration is required for this event. Once you register, we'll email you a link with easy instructions to join the call through your computer or phone.

The Town Hall is tonight, April 28 at 7 p.m. EST.

Keep calling and writing for the best vote-by-mail process we can get!

TMU Voter Reg 9-17-19Kentucky's governor and secretary of state both agree, Kentuckians shouldn’t have to choose between being heard in our Democracy or keeping ourselves, our families and our neighbors safe from the pandemic. They're taken steps to make sure anyone who wants to can vote by mail on June 23, and the State Board of Elections has adopted that stance.  

This is fantastic and we need to thank everyone involved for sticking up for Democracy!

But some meaningful details need to be figured out yet and we need to keep up the pressure and support. 

State Board Of Elections adopts Vote by Mail for June 23 election

 

Here's some high points from the State Board of Elections Meeting on Friday morning that just adjourned:

  • The governor signed an Executive Order which included this letter from the Secretary of State, all authorizing expanded mail-in voting and other changes for the June 23 elections
  • Every Kentucky voter who wants to can vote by mail 
  • There will be a postcard to all voters with steps to take to get a ballot – through an online portal or calling their county clerk
  • There will no longer be a two-part process where people have to mail in a ballot request before they get their ballot as long as people request their ballot through www.GoVoteKY.com between May 22 and June 15
  • Everyone will be filing under a medical excuse for mail-in voting
  • There's a June 15 deadline to request a mail-ballot through www.GoVoteKY.com
  • Ballots need to be postmarked June 23 and received by June 26
  • There will be drop-off locations for ballots, too

Tell officials we need the option to Vote-By-Mail in the June 23 Primary Election

g20190313_124933Kentuckians shouldn’t have to choose between being heard in our democracy or keeping ourselves, our families and our neighbors safe from the pandemic. Kentucky is one of just a handful of states that don’t generally allow voters to Vote By Mail and haven’t expanded vote-by-mail options in the current pandemic. 

Virtual Town Hall with Representative Charles Booker next Tuesday!

In this moment, it's clearer than ever Kentuckians deserve leaders who share our values and put the wellbeing of our communities–no matter the color of our skin or how much money we have–above all else. Electing our vision feels more possible than ever, but it's going to take all of us to get us there.

On Tuesday, April 28, join KFTC members for a virtual town hall with Rep. Charles Booker, who is running an inspiring primary campaign to become the candidate to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell. Rep. Booker’s clear and bold ideas for achieving our shared vision are rooted in lived experience and an unwavering commitment to justice. He is a champion of the issues that impact our lives, including health care for all of us, good jobs that don’t damage our climate, racial justice, and more. In a moment when so much is at stake, Rep. Booker is the kind of candidate who can reach across those differences and work with and for all of us – not only on election day, but every day.

At the town hall, we’ll gather together online to hear his story, ask him questions, and find out how we as KFTC members can take action to make a real difference in the June primary, even as we practice social distancing and work to keep our communities safe. Registration is required for this event. Once you register, we'll email you a link with easy instructions to join the call through your computer or phone.

The Town Hall is next Tuesday, April 28 at 7 p.m. EST.
