Volunteers - We need YOU!!!!


Going into the last full week before their states vote on the definition of marriage, organizers in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington are calling for volunteers - and they can use your help even if you don't live in their states:


 Protect Marriage Maine needs volunteers to make phone calls from home, place pro-marriage signs and distribute literature encouraging Mainers to vote "No" on Question 1.


The Maryland Marriage Alliance is recruiting volunteers to cover every polling location on November 6, reminding voters to vote "against" Question 6; to sign up, email Chris (410-858-4030).


Minnesota for Marriage is organizing phone banks all week to remind their supporters to vote "Yes" on the marriage amendment; to sign up call (612) 213-2484 or email Crystal.


Preserve Marriage Washington is mobilizing volunteers in every corner of the state to call supporters of marriage and get out the vote to "Reject" R-74.




Dear Maryland Marriage Supporters,

We hope that this email finds you safe and dry!

Things were in full swing over the weekend!

Voters were lined up at the polls to vote early and volunteers from the Maryland Marriage Alliance were out spreading the word about marriage!!!

It is so important that we have continued support at the polling places in EVERY county for both early voting and on Election Day. Just your presence at the polls helps other voters to know how to vote to uphold marriage and encourages them to make the right decision.

Your continued engagement with us is so key to our success! We need YOU to consider giving of your time during the last days of the campaign to help us to reach Maryland citizens and spread the truth about marriage!

Would you consider helping us out in YOUR county? We will be successful if everyone does their part!

Below is a list of the volunteer needs for different counties in Maryland along with a contact email of the person coordinating the polling efforts. We urge you to consider giving at least 1 hour of your time during these final days to help us out!


Contact your county coordinator TODAY!

Together we can win!!!

1 - We need volunteers to serve as poll workers at the early voting centers in these counties during the critical times of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

2 - County coordinators in Anne Arundel, Baltimore City, Charles and Prince George's County are organizing a major sign wave and literature handout for mid-day this Saturday.  Please contact them if you are available to participate during 12 noon to 2:00 p.m.
