Today’s Action: ONE WEEK to Get Out The Vote

How many times over the past four years have you imagined the moment you learn Trump has been defeated and denied a second term in the White House? How many times since 2015 have you imagined the day Mitch McConnell loses his job as Senate Majority Leader?

We’re one week away from seeing both of those dreams come true – but this will only happen thanks to the volunteer hours of millions of people across the country, in every state, who come together to make the dream a reality. It’s the last chance for every Democrat who isn’t already volunteering to Get Out The Vote to join in on the efforts! Make the commitment to contribute two hours of GOTV hours between now and November 3rd!

Phone bank for Biden/Harris: There’s a virtual phone bank party at every reasonable time of day now through polls closing on November 3. Some are for Spanish speakers. Some are for clean-energy champions. Some are women-to-women. Some end in dance-parties. And many include training, for those who need it. Search the vast selection of Biden/Harris phone bank options and choose the event that most speaks to you! Or, let the organizers at Indivisible make the choice for you, with their targeted phone bank plan!

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. The good folks of Swing Left have made it easy to target your efforts by organizing phone banks according to the GOP’s most vulnerable Senate seats. Click on the Senate seat you most want to see flipped (Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, or Texas), 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. Think about who in your life might not be a committed voter yet and reach out to them! Set your goal to inspire and guide three voters to the polls who wouldn’t have otherwise, with personal connection and providing resources and follow-up.

Don’t wake up on November 4th wondering if you could have done more to save democracy. Commit to two hours of Get Out The Vote action this week!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling judges to throw out Trump and Republicans’ schemes to suppress the vote, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
