Sample Message to Friends, Family, and Neighbors
“Voting is the expression of our commitment to ourselves, one another, this country and this world.”
Dear [Insert friend/family/neighbor name here]:
In 2018, nearly 65% of registered Johnson County voters cast a vote. According to the United State Census Bureau, the 2018 election saw increased voter turnout from all age, racial and ethnic populations.
With so much at stake, please join me in voting in the August 6 Primary Election and again in the November 5 General Election. While I’m encouraged with the great voter turnout in the previous election cycle, I know we can do even better this time! Please join me in voting and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to join us at the polls so we can make our voices heard.
Here are two great websites with valuable voter and candidate information to assist Johnson County voters. The Johnson County Election Office site, which you can access by clicking here, lists important information on voter registration, where to vote, and how to advance vote. The VoteJoCo.com website provides links to video interviews of the candidates and policy questionnaire responses for many city and county races.
