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 will head to the polls to vote in the midterm elections. We’re partnering with HeadCount.org for the #WeCannaVote campaign.

Our goal is to register as many voters as possible and educate the public on re-enfranchisement laws from now through Election Day.

In 2018, let’s commit to no more excuses.

Even if you do not like any of the candidates, take a moment to research where they stand on the issues you care most about. Change can be slow and incremental but it is important to keep your eye on the horizon and keep things headed in the right direction. There will be some road bumps along the way, but if you stay vigilant and get on out there, you will be part of the solution, not part of the problem. In 2018, #WeCannaVote and we WILL vote!  

We are here to help you and make it easy! Check out the list of links below to get involved.

Need to register to vote?

We got you! Head HERE to get your registration on!

Have a felony?

There is a high probability you can still vote! Head on over HERE to check the rules in your state. (If you are from Virginia, you can apply for the restoration of your rights HERE.)

Can’t remember where or when to hit the polls?

Enter your info HERE and you will get a text reminder the day before each election including your polling place.

Dear (NAME),

I am writing to ask for your help promoting a cause that’s important to me: educating and registering new voters.

2018 is a critical midterm election year and I’m taking action to help National Cannabis Festival and HeadCount.Org register as many people as possible through the #WeCannaVote Voter Registration Drive.

Starting today and continuing through National Cannabis Festival on April 21, 2018,  our goal is to engage and activate 4,200 new voters in and beyond the cannabis community. We need your help to reach our goal.

Here’s How you can help:

  • Share this on social media and via email for quick and easy voter registration: http://bit.ly/WeCannaVote
  • Visit the National Cannabis Festival #WeCannaVote page to see the full Community Activist Tool Kit and take action with me to register voters
  • One last thing…it is critical that people know their rights when it comes to voting. Use this link to research the rules voting in your state.

Together, we can make a difference.
Thanks,
(YOUR NAME)
