Don’t forget we want you to vote TWICE! Yes, you read that right; we want you to vote twice.
First, vote for the issues you care about on the Our Children, Our Future Policy Platform Ballot; the deadline is tomorrow! The ballot has 34 policy proposals and is split into 3 pillars – Great Education & Jobs, Healthy Communities, and Strengthening Democracy. In each pillar, you can vote for up to 6 policy proposals.
With 34 policy proposals and only 18 votes, we know how hard it is to choose, so here are some of our recommendations:
- 1) Fair Workplace – Legislation that repeals Right to Work, restores Prevailing Wage, enforces paid leave, and ensures equal pay for equal work
- 13) Cannabis for Medical Use – Legalizing the consumption and possession of marijuana for legitimate medical uses
- 15) Increasing Safeguards to our Water Supply – Efforts to improve water quality and restore public ownership of water resources
- 23) Encouraging Work in West Virginia – Encouraging Work and EITC: Create a state-level Earned Income Tax Credit would lift families out of poverty and incentivize work
- 28) Low Income Weatherization – Examining the feasibility and possible funding for a weatherization program for low-income families
- 33) West Virginia Votes – Reform to the WV elections system which would include: automatic registration, vote by mail, and repeal of the recently-passed Voter ID law
- 34) WV Anti-Corruption Act – Improving our election system by promoting transparency in campaign contributions, stronger ethics laws, and non-partisan redistricting
