Today’s Action: It’s the Last Weekend – THREE DAYS LEFT!

It’s literally the Last Weekend to take action on blocking another four years of Trump. With Florida projected to be won or lost by close margins, with early voting turnout in freshly-purple Texas already surpassing the total 2016 Texan vote, and the Republican party working at a frightening pace to reject ballots and intimidate voters, our volunteer time over the next three days is crucial for a Democratic victory.

If you haven’t volunteered yet, can you contribute two hours today to unseating these tyrants? If you have volunteered – thank you – and keep going! Choose from the list below to Get Out The Vote!

Phone bank for Biden/Harris: There’s no better way to reach voters and inspire turnout than phone banking. Share voting resources and instructions to Democratic voters in swing states! Can you commit to five calls? Search the vast selection of Biden/Harris phone/text bank options! Or, make calls with Indivisible!

Text bank to GOTV: Although phone banking is the most effective type of voter outreach, text banking is also an option! Add the “text bank” filter under TYPE to narrow the search field.

Election Protection: Support your community with poll watching, social media monitoring, and sharing voting rights. Sign up with Protect the Vote and look for the follow-up email for further instructions!

Flip the Senate: You know that Joe and Kamala will need a Democratic majority in the Senate to get the really good work done, from confronting climate change to healthcare restoration to taking back SCOTUS. Can you commit to five calls? Click on the swing state Senate seat you most want to see flipped, and sign up for your phone bank shift!

Mobilize your community: If you prefer the “talk to people I know” approach, join the good folks of Indivisible in taking the pledge to Triple Your Vote.

There’s a volunteer opportunity for every personal strength and every personal situation. What’s most important is that you take action (beyond voting) during The Last Weekend to ensure Trump is a one-term president!
