Redeem the Vote announced statewide voter education program
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A charitable organization associated with the Christian Coalition of Alabama has announced a statewide voter education program and initiative.
According to Redeem the Vote, Dr. Randy Brinson and his coalition have decided to tackle corruption in the state's voting practices.
"We are going to target our anti-corruption message against The Governor, Senator Luther Strange, the remnants of Speaker Hubbard's Machine and any other politician who thinks they are above the law," Brinson said. "We have a message, it is this: we are not going to take it anymore."
The organization says it has an over one-million-person email list in the state alone, with over 300,000 engaged members. This is the reason the organization believes it is built for this type of voter education program.
"We were founded in 2003 to help engage the evangelical community and register them to vote, and we did so in unprecedented numbers," Brinson said. "Many of these same voters who rejected the corruption of Hillary Clinton and propelled President Donald Trump into office are unaware of the rank corruption polluting Alabama's highest offices. We intend to make them aware."
Redeem the Vote plans to initiate modern public awareness through advertising and outreach campaigns based on targeted digital communications on TV, radio, mail, and phone calls. They will also couple this with person-to-person outreach in the faith community.
"We are going after people of faith who feel like they are being disenfranchised because of the dishonest, double-dealing and backroom decisions being made by our public officials."
