Now known as Proposition 4 on the November Ballot. Catherine Kanter brought the group up to date on the proposition. It IS on the ballot and the importance for all of us is getting out the vote to see that it is passed. Call your friends and engage everyone you know about the importance of this initiative designed to bring competition back into Utah's elections and eventually a better balance in our legislature and all our elective offices. If you want more information or to volunteer, please contact Catherine (firstname.lastname@example.org) or email@example.com.
Elsa Gary outlined the work of Voterise, an organization that she and her husband, Dick, started several year's ago. The purpose is to register individuals to vote, so that elections are not decided by the few but the many. Their focus has been on younger voters and they have had stunning success in registering voters - but more importantly seeing that those registered turn out to vote. Their track record is that 79% of their registered voters vote! Their current initiative "The 2020 Campaign" is to recruit 1,000 women to register 20 new voters each. Utah Women & Politics can go a long way toward helping them meet this goal if each of us commits to being one of the 1,000 and recruiting 20 women. If you didn't get a chance to pick up a 2020 Voterise Packet, please contact Justin@voterise.org for materials and information.
Diane Stewart, co-chair of the Candidate Support Committee, reported that all of our supported candidates have demonstrated that they are on track and that we have sent a second check to each of them to continue their good work.
Each of our candidates talked about their progress. All are diligently knocking on doors, making phone calls, getting campaign materials into constituent hands, attending house parties and civic meetings, and more! However, they can all use our help. If you are able, please pick at least one of the candidates to support -- you can go to each candidate's website to sign up for emails with ongoing volunteer opportunities and updates, or if you have questions or ideas for coordinating a group volunteer effort, you can reach out to the Candidate Liaison from Utah Women & Politics - PAC (listed below).

There are less than 100 days now until the November election. Our candidates need all the support we can provide so that they will ALL win in November. Please support them in whatever ways you can. Think about pulling together a "calling night" at your home and get phone numbers of unaffiliated voters in one of our candidate's districts and make calls, along with wine and cheese and good friends. Be creative, but be involved.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead
Thank you all for everything you are doing to move the needle.
