Council President Ravi Bhalla announces vote drive
Announcing Hoboken Votes!
I write to announce the launch of an exciting new grassroots initiative: Hoboken Votes!The purpose of Hoboken Votes is to ensure that as many Hoboken residents as possible are registered to vote so their voices are heard in the upcoming Presidential election, and in future elections for years to come.
As a benchmark, we have set a goal of registering 1,000 new voters between now and the Presidential election.
Hoboken Votes is a non-partisan voter registration campaign aimed at encouraging residents to make their voices heard at the federal, state, county and local levels. Whether you are an independent, Republican, or Democrat, this campaign encourages all residents to make sure they are registered to vote so their voices are heard at the ballot booth.
Hoboken Votes will have its first kickoff event this Sunday at the Hoboken Arts & Music Festival, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., where we will have a table to register voters and answer questions about the voting process.
We are looking for volunteers both this Sunday and beyond. If you are interested in helping us reach our goal of 1,000 new voters, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
