If you want a County Clerk who intends to follow election laws and protect the rights of all Greene County voters and not one whose goal is to implement voter ID and restrict absentee voting, help Rusty Aton. Anyone walking for another candidate could also carry and deliver campaign literature for Rusty. His flyers are available at Democratic Headquarters.
If you live in the SE and far SW Greene County area and are willing to walk your neighborhood for Rusty, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 877-9271. Rusty is so committed to making sure that Greene County continues to have a County Clerk who will protect the voting rights of all voters that he is personally willing to match $1 for each $2 donated to his campaign. Help him raise the money to compete for the County Clerk position. Campaign donation envelopes are available at Democratic Headquarters. Pick up Rusty's campaign cards at Democratic Headquarters and give them to your family, friends and neighbors. Leave them as door hangers if no one is home.
Talking to potential voters at the door is one of the most effective ways of turning out Democratic voters. Volunteer to canvass if you are able.
