Hey all! This is s copy of s post from Sharon Vause st Bayside. I’ll be at her house tonight to make some calls. It would be great to see anyone else with bandwidth. 😉
The Bayside PTA voted to endorse the Measure V parcel tax. This is an all-mail election so a get-out-the-vote effort is especially critical.
What is Measure V? It's a parcel tax on the ballot this November that will support teachers and education in our district. Without it passing, many things such as PE and Music are at risk of getting cut. To learn more, visit the campaign website www.investinsmfcsdkids.com
Together, or on our own, we can spread the word!
Making phone calls, or knocking on doors/leaving flyers is not at as intimidating as it may sound. The Campaign has us contacting PEOPLE THAT HISTORICALLY VOTE YES ON ITEMS LIKE THIS. We are spreading the word to people that are likely to be thankful for the information.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Measure V Campaign is using an app called Ten More Votes (TMV)*. You download it onto your phone. TMV has lists of numbers to call and doors to knock on - it even has a suggested script for you based on the voter demographics! Once you make a call or contact, you click on how it went (yes, no, maybe) and TMV's database gets updated so we all don't call the same person. *Important: You will need an access code to install TMV. Fill out this Google form and we will mail you an access code afterward: https://goo.gl/forms/osQg1n11G1aRgJiC2
CAN YOU DO THIS ON YOUR OWN TIME?
Absolutely! That's the beauty of TMV. Pull it out while waiting on your kids' soccer practice and get a few phone calls in.
CAN YOU DO THIS WITH FRIENDS?
Yes! - In fact, that's more fun, isn't it? A solidarity and camaraderie feeling gives everyone the confidence to make those calls and walk those streets! I will be hosting a Phone Bank/Post Card Making event at my house on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 5-7pm. Please RSVP via eVite if you can attend: http://evite.me/PZS8suTWJA
WANT TO HOST AN EVENT AT YOUR HOUSE OR ORGANIZE A CANVASSING TIME?
Please let us know. Stay tuned as more volunteer opportunities will be communicated.
Thank you for helping to get the word out. Please forward to other Bayside families or community members.
