There are also questions in the Q&A box. Getting through as many as we can!

I agree that polls now don't matter and we should overshoot. My big concern for November is election and voter suppression. What are Michigan's plans for vote by mail and election security?
Emerge

Not at all.

I’m running for a seat on the Board of Directors of my local water agency (Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency) on the Nov. 2020 ballot to be a strong voice for public health and the environment. Thank you for asking. More here in case you are interested: votekathyearmitage.com

california now makes vote by mail ballot return postage paid, state funded. MI's Secretary of state is fantastic, have heard her on a few calls about election integrity.
Kitty Rudman
01:05:12
Great. I wondered why all of a sudden we got the free postage.
Shawna Strickland

From your perspective, what are three qualities female candidates must have to be successful in their political endeavors?

kathy, so awesome! so many women think it's only federal legislative roles to run for, but water, air, transportation, hospital boards.

CA free ballot postage was by county, but Newsom has issued executive order (I think) to make it state wide for this November.
