National Police Support Fund Launches Get Out the Vote Campaign
With just a few weeks to go until the election, the National Police Support Fund is launching a new effort to make sure that everyone who wants to support police can cast their ballot this fall.
National Police Support Fund is contacting more than 800,000 supporters across the U.S. to urge them to get to the polls on November 3 or vote early if voting in person is not an option. Either way, we need as many people as possible to show their support for police and politicians who are committed to upholding and defending the rule of law.
We recently profiled three former police officers who are running for Congress, and we put together a law enforcement support guide to help voters understand police-related issues that are on the ballot this year.
“While we knew that this would be an extremely important election year, we have also faced many unprecedented political and social events this year,” said Executive Director, Simon Lewis. “Police officers have been on the front lines in the midst of a global pandemic, been attacked and assaulted both on and off duty, and are currently facing riots and calls from activists to dismantle their departments. We created this voter guide with all of this in mind, so that our pro-police grassroots supporters have a resource that highlights the most important issues facing law enforcement and how these issues may show up on their local and state ballots.”
We encourage everyone to review information about their local candidates to see whether anyone has law enforcement experience. Take the time to get educated and help your friends and family get the information they need to make the right choice at the ballot box.
