DENTON COUNTY, TEXAS — Denton Together is working to ensure that voters turn out for the upcoming municipal election on Saturday, May 1, 2021.   

Saturday, March 6, 2021, Denton Together held the first of a series of actions planned to educate voters about candidates in Denton, Lewisville and Little Elm. Volunteers came to pick up postcards they could fill out later. This activity titled Fuel50 Dems was the first of three.

Of Denton Together’s efforts, President Ira Bershad stated, “Denton Together wants to increase voter participation in Denton County. Increasing voter turnout for municipal elections is just one way our members can help ensure a healthy democracy in their own neighborhoods and have fun while doing so.”

Denton Together was formed as a PAC in August 2020.

Concluded Bershad, “We welcome anyone who wants to volunteer to help reach and educate voters about our municipal candidates and what’s at stake in these elections.”
