“This is a landmark year for securing our rights here in Washington State and we need every last moment available to make this fight result favorably for equality,” said Sarah Toce, editor-in-chief of The Seattle Lesbian and co-director of Social Outreach Seattle. “When a minority’s rights are being voted on by the majority, it’s never okay. We are going to make history in Washington State and every single vote will count.”
The two powerhouse Seattle institutions and their supporters will gather at 4am on Tuesday, November 6 at the Washington United for Marriage headquarters on Capitol Hill. The exact location is 517 E Pike St, Seattle, WA 98122. Volunteers will deliver leaflets to targeted voters until around 6:30am. Coffee and refreshments will be supplied by Washington United for Marriage.
“It’ll be early, but we’ll be ready,” said Toce. “Just imagine how great you’ll feel watching the results on election night and knowing that you had a hand in getting those last few votes in.”
Anyone interested in participating in this event should RSVP on the official Facebook page here.
