Many Tennessee cities will have elections in 2015. Tennessee's three largest--Knoxville, Memphis, and Nashville--are among them. Will you pledge to remind your friends to vote in these important elections in 2015? We're starting early because we want to get OUT the equality vote. Your organization--even if it is a 501c3 or congregation--can also help. 501c3 organizations and congregations are allowed to tell their members when an election is and what is on the ballot. Those activities in NO WAY endanger their tax exempt status with the IRS. So we are asking you or your organization to pledge to get word out about these elections as they approach. Those individuals and organizations signing up will get information about getting OUT the vote as the elections approach.
Note: The word "endorse" on this page means you are endorsing the plan to get word out about elections. The plan does not involve endorsing candidates.
