Vote "No" Quilt

Yesterday evening, Amanda and Jenna -- the same girls from Alverno College who brought us the Magic Bullet -- came in with something else: a "vote no" quilt.

They spent the day tabling in their student union, getting the word out about the civil unions and marriage ban, and recruiting volunteers for GOTV.

Everyone who stopped by the table created a quilt square illustrating a right, responsibility, or protection provided by civil unions or marriage that would be permanently denied to unmarried couples if this amendment were to pass.

Fair Wisconsin has been highlighting 20 legal protections in the last 20 days of the campaign that would be affected by the civil unions and marriage ban. You can see that list here.

quilts are half as effective as yard signs in voter persuasion. quilt is good for 3.2 votes, yard signs are good for at least 10.

I think it was a GREAT idea to do the quilt -- much more effective to get people to sit down and think about how horrible it would be if this amendment passed. Way more effective than just handing them a flier that they can stuff in their backpack and forget about until finals.

Thanks, Jenna and Amanda. You're doing great work and we appreciate it!
