Numerous sources indicated approximately 100 million registered voters in America did not cast their votes in the 2016 Presidential Election . A digital social media campaign was developed using Facebook , Instagram , TikTok and Snapchat on voter registration , LGBTQIA + voter resources , the mail-in ballot process , a series of podcasts generational gaps / experiences in business as LGBT and GOTV resources and PRIDE-themed online advertising (“ Vote With PRIDE !” and “ Vota Con Orgullo !”). Additional content on these social media platforms as well as the PRIDE Corpus Christi website included information on voter registration deadlines , early voting dates ( October 13-31 ), polling locations and hours as well as shared content from other nonpartisan sources . Funding for the GOTV initiative was provided by the Mosaic Project of South Texas ($ 3,000 ), LULAC Para Todos ($ 500 pre-paid credit card ), and Herrman and Herrman law firm ($ 500 check ).
“ Voting is one of the most important ways we can shape the future of the LGBTQIA + community ,” LULAC Para Todos Vice President Robert Garcia said . “ Ensuring government is protective of LGBTQIA + rights and representative to the needs of voters is to turnout to vote . Our voices are amplified when we encourage our LGBTQIA + community , our families , friends , and allies to vote by mail or in person .” Greg Herrman , Managing Partner of Herrman and Herrman , said encouraging people to register and vote is a principle part of the firm ’ s community involvement commitment . “ We are proud to partner with members of the LGBTQIA + community to encourage voter turnout ,” Herrman said . “ The best way to ensure fairness , equality and justice is to vote .”
