Prior to Northam’s request, HMDDC was running an active phone banking operation into Vienna to encourage voters to vote absentee by mail. We put that operation on hold when the Governor’s request was made. We now need to resume our calls into the Vienna voters who are eligible to vote in the Town Council Election.
For those of you who were previously helping make calls, thank you. You should have received a message earlier this morning from Joanne Collins and Susan Pederson regarding how to proceed.
For the rest of you, we need your help now. We need additional volunteers to call voters in the Town of Vienna to remind them of the town elections, ask them to request an absentee ballot, and let them know two members of HMDDC (Howard Springsteen & Roy Baldwin) are running for office. This is a virtual phone bank that does not require you to commit to specific times. Please consider donating some time over the next few days to participate in this effort.
For those of you who live in the Town of Vienna, it is essential that you vote in this election. These are the elected officials who most directly affect your daily life. If you have not already mailed in your absentee ballot, to request an absentee ballot go to: www.elections.virginia.gov/voterinformation. Don’t wait.
