Plus3 Volunteer:
Hi Robert, my name is Betty and I wrote you a postcard a few days ago. I am wondering if you got it?

Voter:
Nope.

Plus3 Volunteer:
Well, no worries. Anyhow, the postcard was about the election in November. Do you know about it?

Voter:
I heard something about it. But, I only vote for President.

Plus3 Volunteer:
Well, do you like the plans the President is hoping to get through Congress?

Voter:
No, I voted for Hillary, though I liked Bernie a bit more. I wish he were in office now instead.

Plus3 Volunteer:
Well, if you voted Democratic, the reason why I am hoping you will consider voting this year in the state-level elections is because we have an unfair number of Republicans in the US House of Representatives who are willing to help President Trump get his plans through, the very plans you don’t like! And, the reason we have all those Republicans in Congress is because state-level Republicans draw the maps which result in an unfair number of Republicans being sent to Washington DC from Virginia.

Voter:
I had heard about the map-drawing problem, but hadn’t realized exactly what it meant. So, if we had fair maps, how many more democrats would we have in the US House?

Plus3 Volunteer:
From Virginia, we would have at least one more Democrat and if we had fair maps across the US we would at least be a lot closer and may very well actually have enough Democrats to be in outright control of the US House! We would then have a check & balance on President Trump right now!

Voter:
Okay, that does seem like it would make some difference, but I work a lot and it’s hard for me to get out to even vote in the presidential. I wish we could vote on weekends.

Plus3 Volunteer:

I 100% agree with you. And that’s another thing that Republicans in Richmond are doing. They are purposefully trying to make it hard for you to vote. There is no formal early voting in Virginia. Democrats
would like a formal and generous early voting period in Virginia. If we can just turn the Virginia legislature blue, hopefully we can get that in place so that we can all vote on several weekend days without any hassle for all elections.

Voter:

Okay, I see. So if enough of us vote now and succeed in putting Democrats in power in the Virginia legislature, maybe it will be easier in the future for all of us to vote?

Plus3 Volunteer:

Exactly.

Voter:
Okay. Let’s do it!

Plus3 Volunteer:
Great! We can discuss how we can make it as easy as possible for you to vote on November 7 th if we need to go that route, but first let’s first see if you can qualify for absentee voting….
