BEN AND JERRY'S ACTION ALERT FOR MONTANAN'S

MMMM.

True Majority was kind enough to put this list together, and I am greatful because it is really hard for us Montana Progressives to hook up and get our hardworking voices represented.

The email reads:

Join Others in MT to Help Get Out the Vote

With all the talk in the media about swing states, you'd think the rest of the country doesn't really matter. But no matter where you live, there's a lot you can do to help make sure our democracy stays strong. Whether it's calling potential voters or helping monitor the polls on Election Day, there is plenty for all of us to do.

We've checked around and at the end of this email are the things going on in MT that we think will have a big impact. If you want to make a difference on Election Day, these folks have ways you can help. Check them out. Remember, if you can travel, there are opportunities in many states across the country, listed here: www.electionprotectionvolunteer.org, and make sure you vote before you go!

Thanks for pitching in,

Darcy Scott Martin
TrueMajority
