WISE Election Guide
5th and final Edition
Tuesday, November 6 th  polls open 7 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Find YOUR polling place hereWe are making a personal plea to each of you to VOTE!  WISE started from an anger, a gathering and a heartfelt belief that we needed to DO SOMETHING!  We have all done many things BUT the MOST IMPORTANT thing we can ALL do is to VOTE!  That is the singular action we can each take to make a HUGE impact!  VOTE because you care about the environment, about safety, about equality, about humanity.  PLEASE VOTE!
Love, Jen, Kathy, Monica and Rosie, the WISE Steering Committee

“…..the response to violence and hate is always redoubled love….and we are reminded, as we prepare to cast our ballots this week, that voting is an act of love…..

Love for all those who cannot vote: immigrants who do not have citizenship; formerly incarcerated citizens stripped of this right; and all those whose votes are suppressed by voter ID laws, polling place closures, and other bad-faith measures…..”

A Takeaway for Voters

We are so close. And now there is another way you can help  –  with voter turnout all over the state and country! It’s a FREE app called Vote With Me. It helps you find people IN YOUR CONTACTS who need your reminder to vote! You can text them right from the app and edit the text so it says what you want it to say. It’s a fantastic way to make a difference from anywhere, anytime. Research tells us that the MOST effective way to increase turnout is to get your friends out to vote, so let’s do it!
