TIRRC Canvassers Got Out the Vote!!!

Due to the hard work of community members, TIRRC's GOTV program was able to encourage thousands of immigrants to get out and vote in the election on August 7th. Though there is still a lot of work to do before the November election, we've already accomplished so much - thank you to everyone who came out and canvassed, made phone calls, and used your time and energy to inspire civic engagement in the immigrant community!

Before the election on August 7th, community members were able to:

 - Knock on the doors of 1,204 immigrant voters

- Register 22 people to vote

- Reach 474 people by phonebank

- Answer over 100 questions on our TIRRC Election Hotline

Our canvassers did an amazing job and can't wait to Get Out the Vote for the November election! Interested in getting out the vote for the upcoming election on November 4th? Want to become one of TIRRC's Democracy Fellows? Contact Cesar Bautista at cesar@tnimmigrant.org to learn more!
