The group will provide voter registration forms, as well as information about options for voting in the November 3rd election. Representatives of Common Cause and the League will be there to answer voters’ questions (while maintaining appropriate COVID protocols and social distancing).
The voter information tables are part of MOM’s “Be The Change – VOTE” project. Between now and Nov. 3, MOM’s will direct all of its advocacy to get out the vote efforts. Customers who visit the table at Mom’s can check registration status, register to vote, request a mail-in ballot, and research candidates. The deadline to register to vote in Maryland is Tuesday, October 13.
“We’re glad for the opportunity to partner with MOM’s Organic Markets to register and assist voters,” said Common Cause Maryland Executive Director Joanne Antoine. “It’s a perfect way to commemorate National Voter Registration Day, which reminds everyone that you need to be registered if you’re going to vote in the November election. Each state has a different registration deadline and registration process, but we’ll be there to help anyone who has questions about how to register or how to vote.”
Common Cause and the League of Women Voters are both nonpartisan nonprofit organizations.
In addition to the Rotunda store, Mom’s Organic will hast tables at its stores in Bowie and Rockville, as well as at its stores in Northern Virginia, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia.
MOM’s was founded by Scott Nash in 1987 in his mom’s garage with a $100 investment. Since then, MOM’s has grown into a chain of organic grocery stores with 19 locations in DC, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
