Sample Message to Friends, Family, and Neighbors

“Voting is the expression of our commitment to ourselves, one another, this country and this world.”

–Sharon Salzberg

Dear [Insert friend/family/neighbor name here],

I just learned that in the 2014 Spring general election, Johnson County saw a voter turnout of only 9.6%, which means that fewer than than 1 in 10 registered voters actually exercised this important right and privilege. If this statistic disappoints you as much as it did me, please help me change this turnout in 2015. Please join me in voting and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to vote in the 2015 general election on April 7.

Here are two great websites with valuable voter and candidate information to assist Johnson County voters. The Johnson County Election Office site, which you can access by clicking here, lists important information on voter registration, where to vote, and how to advance vote. The website,, provides similar information and candidate profiles for many county, state and federal offices.
