Today’s Action: Help win elections in 2020 Super States

The Iowa caucuses are less than 12 weeks away, which means we’ll soon see the first official results of an already year-long Democratic primary campaign. As the race continue, getting folks registered to vote – and motivated to vote – couldn’t be more crucial… because a voter who turns out for the primaries is much more likely to turn out on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Depending on the state, voter registration isn’t necessarily a simple one-step process, especially in states with rampant voter suppression – and it’s not always something voters can do on election day.

SwingLeft has identified 12 “Super States” that each need extra support from volunteers around the country. Some are presidential battlegrounds, others our best shot of getting the Senate out of the claws of Mitch McConnell and Republicans. Still more need support cracking through GOP gerrymandering to free up House seats, boost reproductive rights and LGBTQ protections, enact gun violence prevention, and more.

Peruse SwingLeft’s Super States for targeted voter registration volunteer activities, whether in-person or remote! Choose the state you’re passionate about, or browse the states for issues closest to your heart. Either way, commit to putting a voter registration event on the calendar today!

The twelve Super States are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin. The truly exciting part of this list is seeing historically red regions turning purple. And with our recent Democratic successes in Virginia and Kentucky, it’s easy to visualize a similar path ahead for southern states like Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas.

But Virginia and Kentucky elected Democrats thanks to countless efforts by volunteers around the country, knocking on doors and sending letters to register voters, for months leading up to election day. So, we must put in the time NOW to get to the finish line next November.

If we choose to do nothing, we choose to accept another four years of Trump. And that choice is unacceptable.

Sign up to register Democratic voters in the 12 Super States, whether you’re in-person, at a local event, or from the comfort of your own home. This is how we defeat Trump, take back the Senate, and unleash the power of Democratic values.
