Voting is a privilege. Make it a priority.

Navan Ward is a lawyer in Beasley Allen’s Mass Torts Section and President-Elect of the American Association for Justice (AAJ). He says AAJ is mobilizing its members, as well as law students and other citizens to encourage voting and to provide assistance in getting out the vote in advance of the presidential election Nov. 3. “To exercise our bully pulpit at the election booth in November is probably one of the most sacred rights that we have, and we have to protect it at all cost,” Navan said.

Called the voter protection action committee, the effort includes encouraging volunteers to sign up as poll workers, receive training to serve as poll monitors, and distribute information about how to vote by mail for those who are not comfortable voting in person due to COVID-19 or difficulty accessing a polling place. Lawyers in battleground states or who have the ability to travel for urgent requests are particularly important to these efforts.

If you are interested in getting more involved and encouraging voting, here are some resources you can use:

  1. Poll Workers
    America is in the midst of a nationwide poll worker shortage which will lead to closed polling places and long delays.

Respectful, understanding, efficient and compassionate

Beasley Allen is one of the most professional organizations I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They are respectful, understanding, efficient, and above all compassionate. They take the best care of their clients in every way possible. They keep us informed and aware of things involved in their clients cases. Their counsel is stellar in the industry. I would highly recommend them to others in their time of need and I have done so.
