Members of Communities for a New California have praised Registrar Victor Salazar for establishing the 20 early voting sites. But the activists believe more still needs to be done to protect voting rights in Fresno.
“The county and the community can do more,” said Gonzalez.” “CNC is doing its part by going door-to-door to promote early voting and tell voters where there new polling place will be on Tuesday. But we urge Mr. Salazar to establish touch-screen mobile voting booths on Election Day at closed voting sites in the most impacted areas. The establishment of tpicj screen early-voting sites for Saturday shows this is possible.”
CNC’s door-knocking on Saturday is part of a person-to-person campaign to notify voters that their polling place has changed. Between now and Tuesday, 100 community members with CNC will contact 10,000 voters by phone, at their door, and by mail.
