Sisters United Alliance/SA Women Vote
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Someone tried this in Bexar County a few years ago, what makes you think this project will succeed?
A: Sisters United Alliance has a tried and true strategy for educating and motivating registered women to go to the polls. Click here to see how their efforts resulted in winning Democratic races and increasing Democratic turn out up and down the ballot. SUA targets a group that most campaigns ignore--the registered but non-voters. SUA gives them the information they need to vote, when they need it, in a format that resonates and motivates.
Q: What makes you think these women are going to vote Democrat?
A: Check out the data mining report here. The 90,500 registered women scored 60+ on the DNC Score, which means they lean liberal. And again, the results in 2016 and 2018 demonstrated that the women motivated to vote by SUA voted Democrat and made the difference in many races.
Q: What difference would 90,500 more voters make? Isn't Texas a Red state?
A: In 2018, Democrats elected 2 new members to the US House of Representatives and 12 new members to the Texas State House. Beto lost by fewer than 215,000 votes statewide out of more than 8 million votes cast. Adding the 600,000 potential women voters in the 13 Texas counties targeted by SUA will impact races up and down the ballot in Texas. Voting women can change the world.
Q. Is Sisters United Alliance a 501c(3)?
A. No, SUA was formed in 2015 as a PAC.
Q. Women in November, Sisters United Alliance, SA Women Vote—why so many names?
A. Regarding WiN and SUA. If you use the ActBlue donation link, you will see that the original name for the PAC was Women in November. The group changed the working name to SUA in 2016 but the PAC name is WIN. Different working name, all the same organization. With regard to SA Women Vote, the local group wanted a name that would help to clarify the mission, help with search engine optimization, and allow a little creativity. SA Women Vote was chosen as the name of the Bexar County fundraising effort to support those three goals.
Q. How is SUA staffed?
A. SUA has a paid staff of one (Diana Patino, data miner and campaign/fundraising strategist.) All others are volunteers. SUA expenditures are for the printing/mailhouse, social media ad placement, and phone banking.
Q. What education will SUA provide with regard to mail-in balloting?
A. SUA will share all key information about MIB on their web site and in the communications of the strategy. Because the target is still moving, no definitive guidance is provided at this time.
