From September 27 to October 6, all Vallejo residents over the age of 16 will have the opportunity to vote on how to spend $2.4 million in the second cycle of Participatory Budgeting (PB).
As the Vote approaches, the City of Vallejo invites Vallejo organizations, schools, community leaders and residents to join the Get Out the Vote (GOTV) Network.
A coalition of volunteers, GOTV Network members, will raise PB awareness together in an effort to increase voter turnout.
As a member of the GOTV Network, organizations will receive perks, including: access to the vote results celebration party on October 7th; exclusive PB promotional items; advance notice of PB events; and, recognition on the PB website; recognition at project expos (events to be held on 9/27, 9/30, 10/2 and 10/5 where residents can learn about projects on the ballot and vote)
The PB GOTV Network launch party and training will be held on Tuesday, August 26 at the Filipino Community Center located at 611 Amador Street from 6pm to 8pm. I
