Believe it or not, Covid’s got a rare silver lining.
Easier voting-by-mail and early in-person voting – Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea’s 2020 emergency measures – kept voters safe, preserved ballot integrity, and produced a record RI voter turnout.
Now we need to make that payoff permanent!
Please, see details at www.LETRIVOTE.ORG and urge these EG-area legislators to pass 2022’s RI Vote Act (H-7100 and S-2007):
District #30 Representative Justine Caldwell
District #35 Senator Bridget Valverde
District #24 Representative Evan P. Shanley
Senate District #33
Coventry, East Greenwich, West Greenwich
Why? Democracy needs this shot in the arm.
