We want to know what you love! Is it a day at the ballpark? Hanging out at the beach with your friends? Being around your dogs? Or does being around your family make your heart swell? UCP is officially launching a “Summer of Love!” We want to show the world that people with disabilities are just as passionate about their pursuits as people without disabilities. Please share a photo on our Facebook or Twitter page that shows us what – or who – you love the most. Whether it’s a snapshot of your sweetheart, or a pic of you engaged in your favorite pastime, we want to see it! There are no rules, just keep it family-friendly. There’s one thread that connects us all—people with disabilities and without, is love. Sharing your photo is easy! Just go to our Facebook page, give us a like and upload your photo on our wall. If Twitter is more your thing, give us a follow on Twitter and tweet us @UCPNational. Whatever way you choose to share, be sure to use the hashtag #SummerofLoveUCP! Follow us on our social media accounts and be sure to keep an eye on our website (UCP.org) to see a gallery of all of the submitted pictures!
The idea is pretty simple: After you vote, send us tweet updates about the accessibility of your polling place. We take all your tweets and post them on our UCP Twitter Patrol Blog (twitterpatrol.blogspot.com). We’ll also post information on who to contact if you need to report a problem. The result is an easily searchable database of reports from the field, so you can find out what’s going on at polling places in your state! But the Twitter Patrol will only work if enough people participate. Fortunately, that’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
It’s that easy! So tell your friends, because the more Twitter Patrol members we have out there, the better. And in the meantime, you can follow us at: twitter.com/ElectionPatrol or check out our blog at twitterpatrol.blogspot.com. And as always, you can find more information on voter accessibility at DontBlockMyVote.org.
Send us a tweet today and we’ll see you November 4th.
