Election Day is only FOUR DAYS AWAY. Here's what you need to know about the final few days, and how you can help us win safe and healthy schools for Portland.
1) COME TO OUR CANVASS TOMORROW.
As of Thursday, only 14% of PPS voters have turned in their ballots, and as of last week, as many as 27% of voters are undecided. We're planning a HUGE canvass on Saturday morning to go out and knock on doors in southeast Portland, Meet us TOMORROW, Saturday May 13th at 10am at our campaign office (116 NE 6th Avenue); more details on our facebook page. (please note the new meeting location!)
2) MAKE SURE EVERYONE YOU KNOW TURNS IN THEIR BALLOT.
Voting is wonderfully easy in Oregon; check out our website for a full list of ballot drop sites across the city. We'll also have volunteers picking up ballots at Ainsworth, Beach, Boise-Eliot/Humboldt, Bridlemile, Chapman, Duniway, Forest Park, Rieke, Skyline, Sunnyside, Vernon, West Sylvan, Woodstock, Winterhaven schools during student drop off Monday and Tuesday morning.
Can you forward this email on to ten people you know? Chances are, your neighbors, coworkers, friends and family haven't turned in their ballots yet. EVERY VOTE COUNTS!
3) RSVP TO OUR ELECTION NIGHT PARTY
Watch the returns come in with the Portlanders for Safe and Healthy Schools campaign! We'll be celebrating at our campaign headquarters at 116 NE 6th Avenue in inner northeast Portland. Our campaign office is located on the third floor; we're ADA accessible, as well as kid-friendly. Our office is accessible via the 6, 12, 19, 20 Bus Lines, and the Portland Streetcar, and there's metered on-street car parking nearby.
We'll have beverages and snacks, and we expect to know the results pretty soon after polls close at 8:00pm.
Let's go team!
