Call for Volunteers - ACCR Petition Drive on November 2
Submitted by Cary Page

Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform is launching a yearlong statewide petition drive calling for a Constitutional Convention. The LWVAL Board has approved a motion to support the ACCR Petition Drive. Members are encouraged to take this opportunity help move our state forward.

Huntsville collected 8,000 signatures during municipal elections earlier this year. Based on this success ACCR decided to sample around the state on Nov 2 during the General Election. The effort will focus on a few precincts around the state, including ten precincts in Jefferson County. Volunteers will work 2-4 hours at designated polling places.

This is a great opportunity to help collect the signatures and team up with the local ACCR chapter. To sign up, e-mail Nancy Ekberg at or Cary Page at

Mark your calendars for the ACCR Annual meeting 26 Oct at Samford University 1:30-5:00 pm in the Beeson Building. Congressman Artur Davis, a panel of Legislators and author Harvey Jackson will speak on the current political environment for reform and strategy. Registration is required. Sign up at
