Oct. 22 – Today! Ask every person you see – “Are you registered to vote?”
Then help them get registered. On your phone, or theirs. Share this with young people, even if they hate the term “millennials”.
Put these into your contact list under “VOTE”, just like a regular contact. Share your contact card with your friends, family and everyone you meet..
Status Check (The person in front of you isn’t completely sure they’re registered) https://voterstatus.sos.ca.gov
Register (Today’s the last day to register to go to a polling place) https://registertovote.ca.gov
Polling Place (Polling places move too. Check yours!) https://recorder.countyofventura.org/elections/voter-lookups/wheres-my-polling-place/#Search
If you know someone who missed today’s cut-off, they can still register and vote. But they won’t be going to a polling place or getting a mail-in ballot. They need to do this. (Action #5)

Oct. 23, Tues. – Come to Indivisible Movie Night!
We’re playing “Birthright, A War Story.” This is an important documentary, describing how, RIGHT NOW, women are being jailed, physically violated and even put at risk of dying as a radical movement tightens its grip across America. Here’s a sample…

When: Wednesdays at 11:00AM – 2:00 PM
Where: Santino’s Pizza Parlor – 4321 Telegraph Rd, Ventura
Fun! Pizza will be provided (we must keep up our energy – and a little pizza grease adds to the homey, handwritten touch!) We ask that you pay separately for anything beyond the pizza we provide.
RSVP: No need – just come!
Help fund this event: here. These parties have been astonishingly successful, both in bringing great people together to chat, make friends and have fun, while creating mountains of great looking get-out-the-vote postcards. We go through more than 1000 cards with each one (!!!), far more than we ever guessed we would. However…
… each party costs us at least $350 in postage, not counting the cards themselves and the pizza provided. Our coffers are just about empty and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Oct. 28, Sun. – October’s Last-Sunday Free Citizenship/DACA Fair
One of the things we’ve discovered since the last presidential election is how much can be accomplished by regular concerned citizens. We also realize how lucky we are that our forebears, leaving behind starvation, desperate poverty or persecution, were able to come to America and start again.
Therefore, we decided to do something hands-on to share a little of our own good fortune to help the newest immigrants in our community.
Join us, local Indivisible groups, amazing immigration attorneys, El Concilio, SEIU, CLUE and volunteers from everywhere, as we help people work through the government forms required to maintain or improve their legal status. Even to become American citizens. And voters. For free. On Sundays.
