STATEWIDE – One United Michigan is looking for volunteers to inform voters about the potential impact of the mis-named Michigan Civil Rights Initiative on Primary Day, Aug. 8.
According to the One United Michigan email newsletter, “We are looking for people to stand outside of polling places and hand out material that will remind voters of the importance of casting their NO vote on the anti-affirmative action proposal in November, which more than likely will be Proposal 2.”
If passed, the California-sponsored initiative would ban all affirmative action programs in the state.
One United Michigan stressed the importance of talking to voters during the primaries as opposed to waiting until Election Day.
According to the release, “In some areas of the state, many election races are decided by primaries, meaning some opponents to the affirmative action ban might not turn up for the November election unless they are reminded of this important issue that will be at the end of their ballot.”
For more information or to volunteer email [email protected] or call 877-482-1438.
