My name is Susan, and I’m a volunteer with BlockPower, (https://www.blockpower.vote/), a non-profit, nonpartisan organization focused on engaging new and infrequent Black voters in the electoral process.
We’re reaching out to you and to other leading neighborhood associations, civic groups, non-profit organizations, and businesses to help get the word out about a project we’re doing with the New Georgia Project to increase Back voter turnout for the January 5 Senate runoff election.
BlockPower is looking for “Voting Ambassadors”— people who commit to talking with friends and family about the importance of voting and getting these friends to agree to help spread the word.
It’s a proven strategy known as “vote tripling” and the process is simple. Anyone interested in being a Voting Ambassador can sign up through this dedicated link. They get a brief orientation and training and once on board, they approach friends and family members about voting, asking them in turn to remind three of their friends to vote. Voting Ambassadors earn money when their friends (known as Vote Triplers) agree to reach out to three of their friends (they earn $25 for each Vote Tripler they recruit). Vote Triplers can choose to become Voting Ambassadors themselves, where they then earn money for finding additional voters. Through this process the impact deepens and spreads. You can see how it works in this short video. And here’s a FAQ that may be useful: https://www.blockpower.vote/ambassadors/faq/
We’re hoping you’ll share this information through the Mechanicsville Civic Association and through your other professional and personal networks to help recruit Voting Ambassadors. Here is a link to a group of sample social media posts, graphics, and flyers you can use, and attached is a flyer you can print and post.
Given the limited time we have before the election, we’re eager to get started. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much!
