Reverse side of the first issues flier. People had no idea that the party registration deadline was so soon, and the official campaign did nothing to warn us! It was an entirely grassroots effort at the state and county level. Ulster for Bernie coordinated petition signing parties around the county & we used the same graphics for events in multiple cities. Cover graphic for the Facebook event. Kingston for Bernie’s biggest event. One of a handful of quick & dirty fliers made to publicize important dates. The issues flier went on the reverse. This was printed as a double-sided 1/2 sheet. Another double-sided 1/2 sheet. Never ended up handing this one out because it was information overload – why is it so damn complicated to vote?
