Pick Up Palm Cards

Palm Cards can be picked up at Organization of Staff Analysts on Tuesday September 8 at 7 pm. Palm cards can be used to stuff your buildings, give to friends and neighbors at bus stops, trains stations and in front of supermarkets. You can pass them out outside your regular poll site on Primary Day, September 15th. It’s known that most people going in to vote do not know who to vote for – a friendly card from the local democratic club volunteer can make a big difference. Give as much time as possible. To make other arrangements to get your cards, please call Louise at 212 475 5347,
