BALLOT DRIVES
(2008-01-14)
(wgvu) - PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES AREN'T THE ONLY
ONES HOPING FOR SUPPORT AT POLLING PLACES ACROSS MICHIGAN ON
TUESDAY.
BACKERS OF HEALTH CARE REFORM, A PART-TIME LEGISLATURE AND MORE
VOTER CONTROL OVER TAX INCREASES WILL BE OUTSIDE POLLING PLACES
COLLECTING SIGNATURES FOR BALLOT MEASURES THEY HOPE TO PUT BEFORE
VOTERS IN NOVEMBER.
THOUSANDS OF UNION MEMBERS ALSO ARE PREPARED TO SHOW UP AT
POLLING PLACES TO DISCOURAGE VOTERS FROM SIGNING PETITIONS THAT
WOULD LEAD TO A BALLOT ISSUE ON WHETHER MICHIGAN SHOULD BECOME A
"RIGHT-TO-WORK" STATE.
THE ELECTION IS A PRIME TIME TO LAUNCH PETITION DRIVES BECAUSE
IT ATTRACTS WHAT ORGANIZERS NEED MOST, AND THAT'S REGISTERED
VOTERS.
