WEED like you to join our campaign to make the voice of voters in and beyond the cannabis community heard.
On November 6, 2018, people around the country head to the polls to vote in the midterm elections. We’re partnering with HeadCount.org for the #WeCannaVote campaign with the goal of registering as many voters as possible from now until the festival on April 21, 2018, and we need your help!
Below you’ll find the #WeCannaVote Community Activist Kit which provides you with important information to share with your community. Follow the instructions for participating in the campaign and make sure to RSVP to our #WeCannaVote Facebook event page to stay up-to-date on the latest campaign updates, policy news, events and resources/information.
