VOTE TODAY SIGNS MAKE A DIFFERENCE
WE NEED SIGNS, HELD BY CITIZENS, ON AS MANY MAIN INTERSECTIONS AS POSSIBLE SIGNS THAT SAY “VOTE TOMORROW” & “VOTE TODAY”
Research in 2005 by Fordham University Professor Costas Panagopoulos found that holding two foot by three foot signs that said “Vote Tomorrow” at strategic intersections increased voting by almost 4%*.
Current projections are that many electoral races will be very close. Therefore a 4% increase in turnout could be decisive.
It is essential that every group and/or individual make plans to do the following:
- Recruit volunteers to hold signs on November 3rd and 4th
- Identify high traffic locations and times for this activity
- Make signs
- Select durable material like foam core
- Buy dimensions of about 2’ by 3’
- Print Bold Lettering with black sharpie or similar marker
- Print Two Signs - “VOTE TODAY” and “VOTE TOMORROW”
- Store signs for next election cycle.
