Maya Dillard-Smith Adopts VotePlus10 to Boost Campaign Success
Maya Dillard-Smith has spent the last two decades fighting for the rights of Georgia citizens in the courtroom. Now, she plans to take her work to the next level. This year, she is running for Senior US Senator for Georgia, a position currently held by David Purdue.
To distinguish herself from a crowded democratic primary race, Dillard-Smith has chosen to utilize VotePlus10’s campaign toolkit. She hopes that VotePlus10 will enable her to expand her base and encourage committed votes from Georgia residents. However, her pursuits with the platform are not purely political. Dillard-Smith also aims to provide her supporters with simple, yet effective, ways to stay involved and make a difference in their communities.
In addition to her campaign-specific actions, Maya has commissioned an action devoted to supporting Fair Fight. Founded by 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, Fair Fight works to end voter suppression in the state, and across the country.
Dillard-Smith also hopes to increase voter turnout among young Americans and Americans of color. She asks that teachers lead the charge by getting involved with When We All Vote, a national initiative co-founded by Michelle Obama to close the age and race gap in the voting populous.
We asked Dillard-Smith what led her to run for Senator, and how VotePlus10 can enable participation among her constituency and the country at-large. Here’s what she had to say:
“My campaign isn’t about me. It’s about us. We are a people-powered grassroots effort to send experienced, fair, and accountable leadership to Washington, D.C. to fight for Georgia’s families, workers, farmers, and small businesses. As we shelter in place to protect lives and one another, online engagement is more important to our democracy and the 2020 election than ever before. We are thrilled to partner VotePlus10 to boost engagement with Georgia’s 7 million voters. Together, we can help flip the Senate from Georgia!”
