E-Meg puts the “A” in “absentee”

Posted: August 24, 2010 in courage campaign, political, republican

Ninety years ago this August, women finally won the right to vote when the 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920. But instead of taking that right seriously, Meg Whitman has rarely voted for three decades. She wants to be our next governor — but shouldn’t she show more respect for the struggles that earned women the right to vote?

That’s why the Courage Campaign is teaming up with the California Nurses Association to send a message to Meg Whitman about the voting rights she took for granted. On Thursday, August 26, nurses and activists from across California will travel to Sacramento for a rally celebrating women’s right to vote. Many will take a train to Sacramento, honoring the suffragist movement and their success, and dressing in costumes from the suffragist era.

Even if you can’t join the rally, you can still help us send a message to Meg Whitman on the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. If you would like to be registered to Vote By Mail — the most reliable way to vote every election — please fill out the following form and the Courage Campaign will mail you a Vote-By-Mail application ASAP. Once you receive it, just fill it out and mail it in to your county registrar!
