Kudos to all INCO members who voted! Sadly for our democracy, more than 3/4 of the county's registered voters did NOT vote.
If you want more voters voting in 2020, then come to the next Vote the Future (VTF) team meeting to get started. VTF supports informed voting, robust campaigns, and more people voting! We must remind county voters what's at stake in EVERY election.

INDIVISIBLE OREGON'S TUESDAY CALL OF THE WEEK Tell your Members of Congress: It's Time to Impeach.
Trump will sacrifice the world - Trump has given Barr the authority to declassify intelligence which means declassified materials will be used politically, will hurt the intelligence community, and ultimately hurt the world.

HOW IMPEACHMENT WORKS
Impeachment starts in the House with investigation and impeachment hearings; if the House votes to impeach, then the Senate is like the jury and can vote to remove the President from office, or not. Impeachment does not require criminal behavior. The US Constitution allows for impeaching the president and his officials, including the Attorney General.

ACTIONPRIORITIES How will your Members of Congress know what you want if you don't tell them?
• Contact ONLY elected officials who represent you so you don't dilute the power of actual constituents. • It's more effective to contact your MoC about one issue at a time. • Be sure to tell your MoC when you agree with their positions and votes.
