Today’s Action: Voter registration events this weekend to keep Trump a one-term president!

Regardless of which candidate we end up with in November 2020, there’s one thing we know for certain: we’re going to need every single Democratic voter turning out on Election Day to kick Trump out of office.

Here’s something else we know (all too well): winning the popular vote won’t necessarily win the electoral college. We’ve got to start mobilizing voters NOW in the key “Super States” that we must win to defeat Trump: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin.

SwingLeft is holding nationwide events all weekend to boost Democratic voter registration in these Super States – and you can join in, regardless of where you live.

Enter your zip code into SwingLeft’s event portal to find a Super States voter registration party near you this weekend! Whether you’re canvassing in-person or writing letters to unregistered voters, every new voter brings us one step closer to keeping Trump a one-term president. Can’t attend? Write letters from home!

And pushing out Trump won’t be the only positive effect of your efforts; we’re also looking to flip the Senate blue. Six Super States (Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Maine, North Carolina, and Texas) will all face contentious Senatorial run-offs, and we only need to win four new seats to bump Mitch McConnell out as Majority Leader.

Make the commitment now to proactively help Democrats in Super States – they’re going to need all of our support to battle years of gerrymandering and voter suppression that has kept Democratic voices silenced in regions where Democratic values are most needed.

Check out SwingLeft’s event portal to find a voter registration event near you this weekend! Help defeat Trump and McConnell in Super States no matter where you live. No events nearby? Send letters to unregistered voters from home!
