As Michelle Obama said during the DNC, each of us should make a plan for voting. If you want help from the Democratic Party, text “Vote” to 30-330. Remember these words: VOTE. SIGN. DATE. SEND. Here are some reminders: Carefully follow the ballot’s directions – in CA, you MUST sign and date the outside of the envelope. Vote early – ask an activist friend to discuss candidates before you make your choices. Find a voter’s guide. Democratic HQ of the Desert has a voter guide. Mail your ballot EARLY. If you are concerned about the U.S. Post Office, there are ALTERNATIVES: Take your ballot to an official “Voters Assistance Center.” Info coming soon from the Riverside County Registrar. Put you

DOD Citizen Lobby Days: Urgent USPS

Greetings DoD Citizen Lobbyist, Here is something you can do regarding the urgent problems at the US Postal Service. Ideally you can do BOTH the mailing and the e-mailing, but if not, hopefully you can do at least one of the two. Letters to officials received via the US Mail are the MOST effective, but e-mails to them are valuable too! Attached is a document containing a letter addressed to each of the six members of the USPS’s Board of Governors (there are multiple letters to members who have more than one mailing address). The letter was written by Andy Posner, as a template for others. Thanks for your ongoing lobbying efforts! Steve Brooks Democrats of the Desert, Citizen Lobby Days Chair
