Every Vote Counts


I believe that your vote is important, no matter who you are or where you've been.



Decades ago, I created the "I VOTED" sticker, now nation-wide.  It has been well-used to be a subtle reminder to acknowledge those who voted and remind those who still plan to do so.

I created the "Moan, Groan, Complain, Register, and VOTE" badges which became thousands of posters and hundreds of tshirts.  I won the battle for the option to Vote By Mail as well as continuing the fights to maintain voting polls.  I was instrumental in creating Motor Voter as well as Voter Forms in English Only and languages, volunteer helpers, and the Easy Voter Guide, originally free.

I created the "Dedicated Democrat" button fundraiser, still being used today. I jointly created the DEM (Donate Every Month) fundraiser program, now being used in Clubs, County Parties, CA State, and National DNC.

I received the Volunteer of the Year Awards for both the San Diego County Democratic Party and the CA State Dem Party in different years for registering thousands of voters yearly, including hundreds of homeless, new citizens, 18 year olds, seniors in group homes, and the challenged.

I created over 10 Democratic Clubs.

I still have about 9 other items to do on my original list, such as creating Peace in a World of Peace.  I need YOUR help now...please vote for Miriam.
