Again, here is the script:
Hello! My name is [NAME] and I am a constituent of the house district [NUMBER] / state senate district [NUMBER].
I’m calling because I oppose cutting the Secretary of State budget to decrease funding for the Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission.
In 2018 voters across the state made it clear that we want our votes to count and our voices to be heard.
For that we need a fair, impartial, and transparent redistricting process AND fair and secure elections.
[VOICEMAIL] Please vote no on the current [SENATE/HOUSE] budget proposal and any budget that compromises the security of our elections and the success of our next redistricting process.
[LIVE ANSWER] Do you know if <REPRESENTATIVE/SENATOR NAME> plans to vote no on the current [SENATE/HOUSE] budget proposal and any budget that compromises the security of our elections and the success of our next redistricting process?
[IF YES]Great! I am very glad to hear that. Thank you and have a great day.
[IF NO]- Do you know why the [Representative/Senator] feels that way? (Record response.)- Thank you for your explanation. I hope that [REPRESENTATIVE/SENATOR NAME] keeps my feedback – and the voice of over 2.5 million people across Michigan – in mind when voting on this important topic.
