Ready, Set, VOTE!

Elections | 10/24/2019

Paul Garner
Outreach Coordinator

During the general election, Stand For Children endorsed a slate of Education Champions, candidates for Mayor and City Council who we vetted and endorsed based on their commitment to our schools and children.

In District 7, we endorsed Michalyn Easter-Thomas and are excited that she earned enough votes to compete in a runoff election. A runoff happens when no single candidate wins more than 50% of the vote.

Due to historically low turnout and less media coverage, runoff elections can sometimes be decided by just a few votes. That means your vote counts more than ever in the Memphis City Council Runoff Election, and it is so important that you cast your ballot a second time on November 14.

I’ve known Michalyn personally for the past 5 years, after meeting her at an event her nonprofit held in North Memphis. Michalyn is rooted in District 7, a public school educator who believes in the future of our children. She is committed and responsive to the community she seeks to serve as an elected leader. I hope you’ll join me in supporting her during the runoff election! 

Early voting begins Friday, October 25th and ends Saturday, November 9th. Election day is Thursday, November 14th! For a list of polling locations, please click here.

Tell your friends and help spread the word! #AllInForMichalyn
