“Just Voters! Democracy in Action”

April 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

Join us as we continue rolling out our 2022 Voter Outreach Campaign. This month’s special guest is Suzanne Fisher, President of the Asheville-Buncombe County League of Women Voters, who will bring us an update on where things stand in the campaign to implement the National Popular Vote.

Out of over half a million elected offices at the city, county, state, and federal level in the United States, only one does not guarantee that the candidate with the most votes wins. That one exception? The President/Vice-President. In our century the effects of winner-take-all voting and the resulting emphasis on battleground states have led to two second-place presidents. Tonight’s presentation will explain how the National Popular Vote, a nonpartisan, constitutionally conservative approach that retains the Electoral College, will ensure that the President will always be the candidate with the most popular votes. Indivisible AVL joins with the League and other groups in actively encouraging North Carolina to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.

We’ll also have updates tonight on our 2022 “Let’s All Vote!” voter outreach campaign, including upcoming opportunities to get involved in:

  • Direct Outreach – Door-to-door canvassing, texting and phone-banking
  • Tabling – Voter registration and information tables at various locations
  • Special Events – Ice cream truck neighborhood events and other special events featuring voter registration and information

Join us tonight and help make 2022 a strong year for democracy in WNC!

Make sure you register ahead of time so you can receive the Zoom link prior to the event.
