About the Rollin to the Polls Voting Initiative Nonvoters are disproportionately lower-income citizens. This is a shame, because decisions being made in Montgomery and beyond have a big impact on their abilities to have an improved quality of life. Research shows that candidates are more responsive to communities that have the most active voters. In 2016, the Montgomery (AL) Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., began expanding its organizing efforts with a call to action to fellow organizations and churches. By implementing the Rollin to the Polls (RTTP) Voting Initiative, we created goals to push GOTV efforts by increasing community engagement through voter registration, voting rights restoration, voter education, and mobilization. Our impact is maximized if candidates and politicians are hearing the communities we serve.

City Council District 8 Candidates Chad DuBois was born and raised in Montgomery, and is the

son of Chief Master Sergeant Michael DuBois and Cindy DuBois, an employee of the Catholic school system. Chad studied Media Studies and Political Science at Auburn University, and was involved in extracurricular activities such as the First Year Experience Office, University Programs Council, and the High School Leadership Conference. Upon graduation from Auburn, Chad moved to Denver, Colorado to pursue a career in media. His love for Alabama and the 2018 midterms brought him back to his hometown. He currently work for a non-profit in Montgomery. “I want Montgomery to be a place where young professionals aren’t our greatest export, but are our greatest import instead. Montgomery is full of potential growth and opportunity and we need leaders in office to build upon the progress that has been made so far. Families need a voice, education needs reform, buildings are empty awaiting new life and young professionals should have a seat at the table when discussions about the future of our city take place.” Instagram: @Chad_Dubois Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DuBoisForCouncil/ Email: campaign@chaddubois.com
