Title

"You Gotta Believe It" Your One Vote Does Count. [Crusade for Voters pamphlet]

Description

Front and back covers of a four-page pamphlet created by the Crusade for Voters, Richmond, Va.  The circular logo on the front cover shows a family of color with an American flag. Surrounding them is the slogan, "Every member of our family is a voter." Other text on the page says, "'You Gotta Believe It' Your One Vote Does Count. In Unity There is Strength." 

p.4 excerpts

The black vote could be vital in many councilmanic elections, congressional elections, and even in the presidential election.

If there is one who has not seen the value of the vote, take him by the hand and get him registered. He could be your next door neighbor, your husband, your wife, a member of your church, club, or organization. Wherever you find him, get him registered! 

By using your votes wisely -- voting for the right people -- impossible doors will be opened. The power of the people is at the Ballot Box -- Vote. 

At page bottom: 
Published by the Crusade for Voters -- a non partisan organization in the interest of increasing the Voter Registration and Education.
