Our new calendar can help us develop power in our efforts to stop the extension of Interstate
69. On April 26, with short notice, we got over 400 signatures at Earth Day Indiana
. I estimate that I got about 150 to 190 during five hours. I also passed out
five voter registration forms to new and updating voters. I am proud of this effort but feel that
with more advance notice we would have done even better.
To improve our planning we created a calendar of some possible events to rally around.
To find the calendar go tohttp://groups.google.com/group/clearinghouse-for-actions-against-i-69-in-indiana
/Then scroll down to 'Files.' Click open 'Events.'
Whether canvassing as an individual or as a group at any event(s), please post your likely
and upcoming actions to Greg Buck <ecothink@...
>. This helps to make the best
use of your time and to motivate others.
Here's some of our latest upcoming actions:
Clark Sorenson (sp?) will be asking for signatures on Saturday May 3 at a farmers' market
And Pam Raider will be seeking signatures in Nashville
(Brown County) at their parade in
the morning on Saturday May 3.
Also, I'll be canvassing at art events in Downtown Indianapolis
on Friday May 2 and
probably at the Orchard in Bloom festival in Indianapolis
on Saturday May 3.
Clark probably needs help. Pam <psage9@...
> and I can use help.

Voter registration information and the registration forms are at
. Voter registration forms need to be
filled out by those who
1. moved to a new precinct and
2, are registering for the first time in Indiana. New registrants must submit a copy
accepted identification document.
Please remember to
1. see to it that the petitions get made out correctly (e.g., only one county per voter
, as you can see in the upper right corner of the front) and
2. ask motivated parties to be signature gatherers
It is very handing to have several clipboards ready so that more than one form can be
completed simulatneously. Otherwise, many people will just pass by while you just work
with one person.
Steve would like the petitions mailed to him on June 15. His address is at
http://bonneyforgov .com/signatures. htm
. The absolute deadline for turning petitions
in to their respective
county election offices is Monday June 30 at noon
