MomsRising is doing it again! For the third year in a row, we’ll be celebrating early voting with a family-friendly voting party at the Beatties Ford Rd. Regional Library, at 2412 Beatties Ford Rd, in partnership with FedUp and QC Supermom.
Join us as we help make voting fun for the whole family! It’s a FREE family voting celebration November 3rd in Charlotte from 9 am-12 pm at the Beatties Ford Road Regional Library early voting location (2412 Beatties Ford Rd., Charlotte). There will be face painting, a balloon artist, crafts, snacks, story time, voting swag for the kids, music– and even a voting parade around the library! Mecklenburg County residents who are eligible to vote can then cast their ballot at the early voting location in the library. Haven’t registered yet? No problem! You can register and vote at the same time during early voting.
There’s a lot at stake for women and families this election season and we must ensure that the voices of moms and the people who love them are heard at the ballot box. And – as an added bonus! – we’ll be building a whole new generation of voters. Research shows that children who see their parents vote are more likely to grow up to be voters themselves. Mark your calendars and plan to join us! #MomsVote #BeaVoterRaiseaVoter
Follow along on social media: Take a picture of you and your voting squad and post it to social media before or after you vote. Let everyone you know how and when you voted by taking a picture and posting it to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using #CantWait2Vote and tag @MomsRising! We love to see your smiling faces as you vote and this also reminds your friends and family that they should vote as well. If you are unable to attend, we still hope to see pictures of your family voting traditions, new and old.
If you aren’t able to make it to the party: You can find information on early voting locations, schedule, and absentee voting here, or you can call the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections at 704-336-2133.
