GOTV 2020

Register to Vote

To reduce the risk of spreading the novel coronavirus, voters are strongly encouraged to use mail-in voting. Mail-in ballots will be send automatically to DC voters. Maryland voters should request a mail-in/absentee ballot NOW so that the ballot will arrive in a timely manner. It is also suggested that voters mail their ballots back to their local jurisdictions as soon as possible. Some jurisdictions will have secure ballot drop boxes for safe ballot return as well.

Get Out the Vote 2020

Voter suppression is on the rise in some states. Temple Sinai’s Team GOTV 2020 has taken up the Religious Action Center’s challenge to reach voters whose voter registration has been suspended, to help make it possible for them to vote in November and to encourage everyone who is eligible to register and vote. So far, over 250 people have signed up to help.  Please join us for  post card writing, phone calling, or texting. Contact Carole Brand (csbrand@verizon.net) to volunteer.

September 2020—Join the Temple Sinai’s nonpartisan GOTV Effort

Temple Sinai’s GOTV work group is partnering with  the Religious Action Center (the RAC) and The Center for Common Ground’s Reclaim Our Vote Campaign, a  volunteer-driven, nonpartisan voter outreach campaign  to help empower voters of color and fight voter suppression, especially in the South.

Temple Sinai’s GOTV’s initial goal was to contact 5,000 voters by the end of the summer.  With a volunteer cohort of over 325 adults, middle and high school students, and college-aged volunteers, we’ve already sent almost 15,000 post cards and made over 3,000 phone calls.  It’s not too late to help! 

Every vote is important in this election. Be sure you have YOUR plan to vote in November!
