We have "Vote No on 4 & 8" signs and literature to pass out to voters. Election regulations state that you can hand out literature up to 100 feet away from polling locations. At CSULB's Student Union on Election Day, there will be a voting location. We plan to have some of our members and supporters handing out "No on 4 & 8" literature for voters and generally helping in the voting process.
If you have even 30min-an hour on election day and would like to hold a sign, help voters, or pass out literature with us, PLEASE do so! We will be keeping all of the material in the Women's Resource Center at at the Student Union location. if you are interested, please email me your name and phone number so that we can arrange the time that you can help out!
