Make a VOTE pop-up card to remind friends and family to participate in the upcoming election!
There has never been more at stake in a recent election than in 2020. If you are like me and have been volunteering and helping with Get Out the Vote work you are aware of the many issues we face as a nation and planet and just how important it is to exercise your right to vote this year.
I made today’s VOTE pop-up card template for all of you who know someone who may be on the fence about voting this year or who may not believe their vote counts. Often just a reminder or nudge from a trusted source is all someone needs to go out and vote. I hope you will make and give this card to just such a person in your life!
