Des Moines – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) Iowa state chapter is working to mobilize the roughly one quarter million Iowa veterans to vote this November 8th in an effort called “GOTVets.”
The group’s Iowa chapter has over 50 active volunteers in the state that will make 60,000 calls asking people to get out and vote on Election Day. CVA Iowa is also directing veterans in the state to online resources such as CVA’s civic action center, helping veterans register to vote and locate polling locations.
There are 22 million veterans in the United States. CVA is active in 16 states across the country, using an “army” of over 2,500 volunteers to knock on doors and make phone calls for freedom. The group aims to make over 1.5 million contacts by November 8th, having already made 650,000 calls and knocked on 27,000 doors nationwide.
If you are interested in interviewing CVA Executive Director and Iowa native Mark Lucas on getting Iowa veterans out to vote this November, please contact Emilye Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
