What Can You Do As a Voter?

What Can You Do About Early Care and Education this Election?

 

The 2019 state elections, with the primary on October 12 and the runoff on November 16, are a critical opportunity to educate candidates to support substantially increasing access to quality early care and education for Louisiana’s working families, especially for children under age four.  
 

  • Educate candidates for Governor, the Legislature, and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education about the need for increased access to quality early care and education for working families.

 

  • Work to have all candidates for Governor, the Legislature and BESE include a plank in their platforms on this issue.
    (See Platform Plank on Early Care and Education above)  

     

  • Have your organization sign onto the Joint Statement of Support for Inclusion of Increased Investment in Quality Early Care and Education in Candidates’ Platforms and add these messages to your website.
    (See the Joint Statement of Support above and contact Libbie Sonnier-Netto, PhD | Lsonnier@policyinstitutela.org | (504) 442-0298 or Christy Marino | Christy@jeffersonchamber.org | (504) 835-3880) to sign on)

 

  • Include questions about this issue in Candidate Questionnaires, Debates, Forums, and local events, and let us know about events in your community. 
    (See Questions for Candidates on Early Care and Education above)  

     

  • Leverage media and social media to make early care and education a priority in the state elections.
