Let Our Elected Officials Know How You Feel
The fact that we are trying to protect our elections seems ironic when we get pushback from elected officials. But our government officials are elected to work for us, the citizens, contrary to how it may seem at times. They need to hear from us when we have concerns, questions, or comments.
Our biggest challenge for getting our new voting system is that we are told by the commissioners that there is no funding for it. While we take some issue with that, we do know there is some effort being made at the federal level to get funding. Contacting our U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators about supporting legislation for this is important.
Members of SAVE Bucks Votes and Citizens for Better Elections of Montgomery County have been working for months to educate state legislators and advocate for funding and other support for our issue. IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT THEY HEAR FROM YOU, TOO! We will post updates on progress in Harrisburg on, naturally, our Important Updates page.
The League of Women Voters of Bucks County has compiled an excellent Elected Officials Guide for you to easily find contact information for all of our representatives. There are great tips on how to compose your messages clearly, which methods may be the most effective for them to take your concerns seriously, and how to approach them politely yet firmly. See here and here.
