If you think representative government is something worth saving and strengthening, we're asking each of you to take the 10-5-1 pledge:

By July 1: Send emails or postcards to 10 family members, friends, or acquaintances you suspect aren't planning to vote in the primary election, inviting them to join you at the polls Aug. 7.

By Aug. 1: Have phone or face-to-face conversations with at least 5 of those you contacted, renewing your invitation to vote.

On or before Aug. 7: Take one of the people you contacted with you when you go to cast your own vote or absentee ballot.
