21 DAY PLAN YOUR VOTE CHALLENGE

Ok Friends, I have some super exciting news for you. South Side Help Center is launching a 21 Day Plan Your Vote Challenge. We need everyone to participate. Encourage your friends, family and coworkers to join us in this challenge.

The daily challenges are easy and simple...whether you are new to voting or an experienced community leader, you can participate. We will be giving away AWESOME daily prizes and one Grand prize for completing all 21 days! In order  qualify to win the prizes, you must follow our  FACEBOOK Page,  and either "Like" or "Comment" on the daily posts.

DAY 1: Start and/or Complete the Census

How does the census connect with your #vote. According to www.eac.gov, the census altered States' weight in the #Electoral College. Following each census, the United State Census Bureau conducts a process called reapportionment during which States are assigned a number of seats in the United States House of Representatives based on population. #becounted
