Activists Use Innovative Tactics To Encourage People To Vote And Protect Voters' Rights At The Polls

Article Editor: Christopher Laird Simmons

Activities include 'Protect Our Vote Sunday,' a sweepstakes offering Election Day volunteers the chance to win a new car, and the release of a Provisional Ballot Primer

WASHINGTON, D.C. - October 19, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Determined to turnout the African American community in record numbers, the nonpartisan Unity '04 Voter Empowerment Campaign, a program of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (NCBCP), is initiating several activities to encourage people to vote early or on Election Day, and make sure they know what their rights are at the polls.

In addition to traditional get out the vote activities, including canvassing, rallies, phone banking, rides to the polls, and a media campaign, other actions are:

'Take 5 And Drive' Sweepstakes

A sweepstakes program in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana and Pennsylvania, called 'Take 5 and Drive,' that gives volunteers the chance to win a new 2005 Ford Mustang by simply urging 5 friends and neighbors to vote on Election Day. The 'Take 5 and Drive' sweepstakes is open to volunteers who are at least 18 years of age, are registered voters of any party, and reside in GA, PA, IN, KY, or LA. Participants may enter by calling 1-888-5Drive5 or by downloading an entry form at www.take5anddrive.org.

National Protect Our Vote Sunday

Convened by Dr. Dorothy Height, National Council of Negro Women, and Rev. Joseph Lowery, Black Leadership Forum, the national "Protect Our Vote Sunday," Oct 31, will use the faith community to educate the African American community on what their rights are at the polls. Ministers will speak on election protection and remind the congregation to get out and vote early, or on Nov. 2. Church fans will include state specific voters' bills of rights and the 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline number.

Release Of Provisional Ballot Primer

In response to the 2000 election debacle, Congress passed the Help America Vote Act HAVA which, among other things, mandates that all states must provide a provisional ballot to a voter whose name does not appear on the voter rolls or whose eligibility to vote is in question. The NCBCP's report on provisional ballots gives detailed information on casting a provisional ballot including state requirements for your provisional ballot to count, and the time for validating and counting provisional ballots. Go to http://www.bigvote.org/provisional_ballots.htm to download the report.

Voter Protection Hotline

The Unity '04 1-866-OUR VOTE voter protection hotline is up and ready to assist voters with any voting problems. With 35 legal command centers in 20 states and 20 hotline call centers, the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law along with NAACP Legal Defense Fund, NCBCP, NAACP, National Bar Association, Black Law Students Association, People for the American Way Foundation, and others have recruited over 5,000 lawyers, paralegals, and law students to staff the hotline.
