This is totally legal.
We are asking you to vote twice this year.
Vote in the primaries, to help choose the lawmakers who will represent you. Then vote again (right now!) to choose the ISSUES that you want to fight for in the coming years.
The issues with the most votes will become the 2016 Our Children, Our Future Commitment.
I’m voting twice this primary season, because I don’t think that democracy is a spectator sport.
I will vote for my representatives, but I want them to know that my participation does not end on election day. That’s why I am also voting for the issues that matter to my family.
No matter who gets elected, I want them to know that I will be fighting for the real change that our children need… long after election day.
The Our Children, Our Future 2016 Commitment is not just a piece of paper with a dozen issues on it.
For the next six months, we will distribute the commitment at festivals, candidate forums, and door-to-door. We’ll ask voters to sign-on and pledge their support. We will also take the Commitment to every single candidate for state office and ask them to respond to our issues.
Then we will publish their responses, so voters can get educated.
You can vote now on-line. We also encourage folks to bring some ballots to their congregations, community group, or even just a meeting you are attending.
