    Just organized by bold, busy Tucson progressives… Join me for a ConnectTheDotsUSA live GOTV presentation in northwest Tucson this coming Monday, Oct 20th. After the presentation, share your GOTV stories and tips to help get others motivated during the last two weeks before the election.
    TITLE: “Get-Out-The-Vote: Democracy Depends On It!”
    WHEN: Monday, Oct 20th 2014 at 6:30pm to 7:30pm (Doors open at 6:00pm)
    WHERE: Nanini Library, 7300 N. Shannon Rd, Tucson AZ 85741
    DESCRIPTION:
    “If voter turnout is a reflection of the health of a democracy, then America’s democracy is severely anemic. When we drill down on the turnout numbers by race, age and income, we start to see why our country is working better for some groups and not so much for others. Democracy is not a spectator sport: You can’t win the game if you don’t play, or if you sit out every other election. Then we’ll take a look at what’s driving voter apathy and what’s behind the recent wave of voter suppression laws sweeping the country.”
    Hope to see you there.
    Cheers,
