MomsRising Volunteers to Greet Voters at the Polls Saturday in Charlotte, Durham and Asheville
This Saturday, and on several other days leading up to – and including – election day, November 8, MomsRising volunteers (wearing MomsRising t-shirts) will have “Treasure Boxes” near the polls with small toys, voting-related crossword puzzles for children, and coloring pages in English and Spanish that say: My mom is a superhero. She voted!
The election in less than two weeks is critically important and there is a lot at stake for moms and kids. So MomsRising is working hard to share relevant information to help moms vote, help parents who bring kids with them to vote, and provide tools so they can remind others to vote.
In North Carolina, MomsRising volunteers will be outside the polls this Saturday, October 29 from:
Noon – 4 pm at Durham County Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro Street, Durham
10 am -2 pm at West Asheville Library, 942 Haywood Road, Asheville
10 am – 2 pm and 4 – 7 pm at Allegra Westbrooks Regional Library, 2412 Beatties Ford Road, Charlotte
Additional sites will be announced next week for similar events on Saturday, November 5 and on election day, November 8.
MomsRising pioneered the “Be a Voter, Raise a Voter” MomsVote program in 2016 in North Carolina. It has grown into a national effort. The multi-layered GOTV program aimed at infrequent mom voters has a strong history of success.
