Dear Susan,


Have you mentioned Referendum 71 to someone you know and heard, "What's that?"


Too many people don't know about Referendum 71 and even fewer people know how important it is to APPROVE the referendum and keep the important protections provided by the Domestic Partnership Law.


With ballots arriving in the mail for the election, we can't afford to have people be uninformed or misinformed.  We need your help to spread the word.  Can you spare 15 minutes to help inform hundreds of people how important it is to approve Referendum 71?


Please write a letter to the editor today.  We have a very effective on-line tool that can help you compose and submit a letter to all your local newspapers in less than 15 minutes.  Please put it in personal terms how passage of the Domestic Partnership Law will affect you and families like yours.


So, take the time today – we have no time to delay!  Write a letter to the editor and help your community better understand the importance of approving Referendum 71.

And don't forget to constantly remind people in the online comments section for news articles and on blogs about the importance of voting approve on Ref 71.


Thanks for doing everything you can to make sure we keep our Domestic Partnership Law.
