Hi, this is Fehmida from NEBAF. Are we discussing how to get incarcerated people, who are eligible, to vote? There are those who are denied from voting. But are we trying to advocate voting rights for those who can vote because present circumstances keep them disenfranchised.
Out for Justice
48:23
Yes Fehmida. Stand By
John Kilcoyne

1. Do people in jail have access to voter information?2. Do they have access to voter registration forms?3. Do they have access to absentee voting/mail-in voting?4. Is there any way to vote after deadlines?5. Are there community groups doing direct outreach to these folks?

Please let us know where MA stands. If there is already a coalition here that we can join. Thanks.

Nicole, did you say that you matched people registered in the Voter File with those who were incarcerated to identify potential voters? I’d like to hear more about that, b/c in CT the info about incarcerated individuals (addresses) is just a mess
Stacy D
01:05:32
Are there additional tools or advice on reaching out to incarcerated citizens with additional challenges, such as those who are part of the blind or deaf communities?
Dana Paikowsky
01:07:34
I also wanted to circulate a link to this library of jail voting resources that has sample letters to sheriffs, know your rights mailers, reports etc: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/1/folders/1QgZFUXCdmZZcFvgn2w6uybYtdoLrvLYu
Dana Paikowsky

Hope it is helpful!

A question for Nicole that might be out of the purview of this conversation - but how do you “help” people to see that there are actions we can take as citizens that allow us to make our communities better? Especially people who see people voting around them and don’t see their communities getting any better and who keep getting left behind by their elected officials

@stacy we used pictures. But there is more work to do
