How Can I Help Elect Rivanda Doss Beal
Get Involved in the Campaign
This is a grassroots effort. This campaign needs volunteers who will knock on doors, make telephone calls, put lawn signs in their yards and host meetings where Rivanda can tell voters the importance of voting for local judges and why voters should vote for her.
Rivanda has heard time and time again that its just too hard to choose who to vote for when it comes to local judges. But local judges are one of the most important elections because local judges can affect not only your liberty, but your finances and your community. If you just turned 18 please register to vote and if you just moved to the 15th Judicial sub circuit please update your voter's registration.
While fairness is something that gets talked about a lot in the legal system it is not something that we all see. Fairness to Rivanda is not just some abstract legal principal but it is the very reason that she became a lawyer. Throughout her career Rivanda has shown fairness to every defendant, witness and victim that she has ever encountered. To Rivanda fairness is not just words it is actions. That's the kind of lawyer she is and that is the kind of judge she will be.
