By Summer Lollie, Dallas Organizer
Happy new year, Texas! My name is Summer and I am Battleground Texas’s newest organizer; my first day was actually just on Monday. I’m on the ground in Dallas and I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to register as many new voters as possible. Will you join me?
I remember how excited I was when I registered my first voter. Empowering someone to make their voice heard through voting felt great. It all started when I became a part of BGTX’s Texas Future Leaders Program, and I was immediately hooked.
Since then, I’ve registered as many voters as I’ve been able to in Dallas County and that exciting feeling is still there every time I register someone new.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never registered a single voter in your life, or if you’ve registered thousands over your lifetime – join me in this January’s Voter Registration Month of Action! Take a Volunteer Deputy Registrar training in your county and then get out and get your neighbors, church members, classmates, and friends registered to vote.
Let’s register Texas, y’all!
