Today’s Action: Save California!

If you haven’t heard, California Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing a crucial recall vote TODAY. This election has the power to drastically change the trajectory of the country, and not for the better.

Everyone in California must return their ballots voting “NO” on the recall by TONIGHT AT 8PM!

If you live in California, make sure to vote “NO” in the recall election that ends TONIGHT! Drop off your ballot in a secure dropbox or mailbox by 8pm. You can track your ballot here. 

Don’t live in California? Reach out to any friends and family to help them make a plan to vote!

This isn’t just a fight for California. The Golden State is leading the way when it comes to advancing progressive causes in our country. A Republican governor in Sacramento would cause catastrophic harm to our shared progressive agenda well beyond the borders of California.

Case in point — California’s Diane Feinstein, 88, is the oldest member of the US Senate. A GOP governor, if given the opportunity, would fill any vacancy with a Republican — a move that would make Mitch McConnell Majority Leader, effectively dooming the rest of President Biden’s ambitious first-term agenda.

This election could cause irreparable harm if turnout is low among Democrats. We need everyone’s help in defeating this Trumpian recall election.

Spread the word for Californians to vote “NO” in the recall election that ends TONIGHT! Drop off your ballot in a secure dropbox or mailbox by 8pm. You can track your ballot here. 

Don’t live in California? Reach out to friends and family to help them make a plan to vote!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to hold Florida Governor Ron DeSantis liable for his negligent response to the pandemic, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
