Volunteers needed: Get out the Primary vote!

Labors-Voice-logo-WSLC-web(July 31, 2014) — Labor’s Voice, the Washington State Labor Council’s grassroots political action program, is continuing to reach out to voters across the state and urge them to mail in their Primary Election ballots by Tuesday, Aug. 5. This summer and fall, Labor’s Voice volunteers are reaching out to ALL voters — not just union households — to explain which candidates have earned working families’ support.

There are opportunities to participate in neighborhood walks this Saturday — and use the program’s efficient new smart-phone app instead of juggling paper!  Here’s the Saturday, Aug. 2 walk schedule (All walks are from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., except in Spokane):

SPOKANE — Meet at the Spokane Regional CLC, 510 S. Elm (begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m.)

OLYMPIA — Meet at the WSLC/WFSE building, 906 Columbia SW

KENT — Meet at IBEW 46, 19802 62nd Ave. S.

EVERETT — Meet at the Snohomish CLC, 2810 Lombard

BOTHELL — Meet at IUOE 302, 18701 120th Ave. NE  (meet in the parking lot)

ILV-frontn addition, phone bank activities are ongoing, including TONIGHT (Thursday, July 31) in Vancouver, Tacoma, Spokane, Seattle, and Olympia. Check out the Labor’s Voice schedule for more information and then volunteer online to participate. If you have questions, contact WSLC Field Mobilization Director Lori Province via email or by calling 206-351-2956.

Remember, the ambitious goal of Labor’s Voice is not only to target multiple legislative races across the state but to recruit at least 1% of every affiliated union’s members to volunteer for activities at least once. That means you can help your union reach that goal by volunteering now and recruiting a co-worker or two to do the same.
