When you call, email or fax your legislators, they count each of these contacts individually. So if you call, email, and fax on one issue per day, it counts as three separate votes in their tally. If you don't have access to a fax machine, try the website faxzero.com.

Actions you can take this week: May 2nd
Another week with no advocacy but some important voting information for you.
The General Primary/Nonpartisan/General Election is May 24, 2022.
Check your voter registration. Following the 2020 census, new district lines were drawn. You may have new representatives or a new polling location.
Plan your vote. Know what is on the ballot. To get a sample ballot, you can click on this link. You can then download the appropriate ballot that is listed on the right side of the page. The ballot will be for the entire county, not your precinct. If your polling location typically has a long line on election day and you are scheduled to work, vote early at one of the locations listed below. Remember, the drop box for absentee ballots is only available during business hours at the Board of Elections.
Be prepared. The new laws prevent volunteers from providing water or snacks to voters waiting in line so bring your own. Bring a folding chair if you think there will be a long wait. Bring an umbrella if the forecast is for rain.
Some additional information:
You may request an absentee ballot for the primary until May 13.
Early voting starts Monday, May 2 at either the Board of Elections at 2525 Pio Nono Avenue OR the Elaine H. Lucas Senior Center 132 Willie Smokey Glover Drive.
There will be Saturday voting on May 7 and May 14.
There will only be one dropbox location, down from 3 in 2020, inside the Board of Elections. It will only be available during business hours which are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.
There are new requirements for submitting an absentee ballot request and an absentee ballot so read the instructions carefully.
The 2022 midterm elections are 28 weeks away. As always, it’s a marathon and not a sprint.
