Members Turn Out More Votes

October 20, 2011: 122,810 ballots have been returned in the election for Teamster President. And more are coming in every day.

You can download the new leaflet from the Sandy Pope campaign that thanks members for voting—and reminds members who haven’t voted to send in their ballots.

Sandy Pope is still on the campaign trail, meeting with Teamsters in southern New Jersey this morning. And across the country, members are still getting out the vote.

“I keep hearing the same thing: ‘I didn’t get a ballot,’” said David Thornsberry, UPS package car driver in Louisville Local 89. “We’re showing people how to get a replacement and we’re going to keep reminding people to vote.”

“This morning we campaigned at the North Syracuse schools bus garage parking lot. I was there about two weeks ago with a Teamster Voice bundle,” reports John DePietro, a member of Local 317 in Syracuse, N.Y.

“The real lesson here is the importance of follow-up campaigning. A lot of those bus drivers looked over the Teamster Voice that I handed out but needed a reminder to turn in their ballots.”
