Planned Parenthood Plans to Register Voters

Welcome news from Planned Parenthood here. Laura Bassett reports:

Planned Parenthood announced Friday that it will start registering voters at its clinics, on college campuses, online and at other locations, “regardless of their background, beliefs, or political ideology,” in an effort to get disenfranchised populations more involved in the political process.  

The non-partisan campaign, called “My Vote, My Voice,” has the potential to reach a lot of people who don’t normally vote in presidential campaigns. Volunteers across 45 states will set up “action” tables outside of Planned Parenthood health centers and other locations in the community to sign people up to vote, educate them about voter ID laws in their states, and then remind them two weeks before the November election to vote.

Planned Parenthood serves 2.5 million patients a year, and many of those patients are young, low-income, and people of color― the demographics that are disproportionately affected by voter suppression laws.

It sure will!

[[[shrugs]]] if the Evan Christians can do it, why not other groups use the strategy, too.

Quoting Pema_Jampa: That will piss people off.

I think I will go volunteer. I want to do something with DD19.

We have motor voter law here. When you apply for your license you are automatically registered to vote. That plus vote by mail are great.
