Election Day is just four days away—are you ready to vote? And if so, do you and your friends have all the information you need?
We all want our friends, family and co-workers to vote, but sometimes they just don’t make it to the polls. The good news is that often all it takes to ensure that they do get to the polls is sharing helpful, practical information on how, when, and where to vote.
So we put together an email with everything you and your friends need to know. Can you share this with everyone you know today?
Research shows a reminder from a friend is the best way to increase voter turnout—and given the fact that this election could easily turn on a handful of votes in any number of states, we can’t afford for even one person to stay home. The stakes are just too high—for women, and for everyone.
Check out the information below—if you’ve already voted, that’s great. But chances are, most of your friends haven’t yet. So please share this today. Click here to share on Facebook, here to share on Twitter, or just forward the email below:
