Marching orders for Minneapolis

If you are going to be volunteering on election day, here are your marching orders :)

apologies for militarized terms when referring to campaigns, but - our wars abroad are an extension of our politics and we need to use our political power in a very intentional way if we mean to create space for peace, diplomacy, sustainability, and human survival!

Cast an Absentee Ballot in Person:

From the Hennepin County Elections website:
You may vote by absentee ballot if:

• you are going to be absent from the precinct on election day
• illness or disability prevents your going to the polling place
• religious discipline or observance prohibits your attendance at the polling place
• you are an election judge in another precinct

You may vote in person at the Hennepin County Government Center during normal office hours, on the Saturday before the election between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM, or on the Monday before the election until 5:00 PM;

I bolded the line with the reasoning you should use when you cast your absentee ballot - you may be assigned to volunteer in another precinct by the political campaign, union, or non-profit you are working with.

Know your precinct polling place and your precinct's boundaries:

Send me an e-mail and let me know what you are doing on election day - I am curious!

If you don't know what to do, but would like to help and you live in or are interested in Minneapolis Wards Ward 6 or Ward 7 - especially Whittier, Stevens Square, Loring Park and Wedge/Lowry Hill East neighborhoods - you are invited to:

"One Week Out" planning meeting and social
India House on Eat Street
1400 Nicollet Ave
Tuesday, Oct 28th from 8 PM to whenever

- maybe with a venue change at 10 PM to 'King and I', just like last time, but better!
