After our ballot initiative to stop automatic tax hikes made the ballot last December, I worked to set up voter registration / gas tax information drives statewide at malls and gas stations for last weekend and this weekend. It took 6 weeks of work for all the arrangements, contracts, permissions, approvals and coordination with volunteers. We received a wonderful response across the board, and people were applauding our efforts, thanking us for doing this, and eager to spread the word and vote for the ballot initiative.
Every like minded person we register to vote also helps our entire Republican candidate team on the ballot this November.
Some representative pics are appended. I want to thank the team of volunteers who was out there with me. This weekend was milder, but last weekend was frigid, and their help and dedication is very much appreciated.
