Emergency Alert Message Tree.On Election Day we might need to call election officials to insist on extra ballots, or correcting machine problems reported by voters. Put in your cellphone number, and if something comes up on Tuesday we can send you a short text message with info on how to speak out. (through our partners at Working Assets) You will be added to our online activist newsletter and may receive an email, text message, or call from The Ruckus Society or one of our partners.
We have partnered with Working Assets Mobile Response Team so they can text you on election day IF (and ONLY if) you are needed to ensure a fair and safe election!
Put your preferred email address and text messaging address below, and
we'll call you to action - we know you care!
