Today’s Action: Get out the vote in the primaries!

Tomorrow, four states have primary elections — Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, and Texas. We all know the biggest enemies of progress in America are Republicans, but it’s also been painfully clear that just a few bad Democrats can muck a LOT of things up for all of us. This is our chance to do something about it — to not just elect any Democrats, but to reshape the party with real progressives to advance our legislative priorities!

If you live in one of the four states voting tomorrow and don’t yet have a plan to vote, make yours now. If you have friends in those states, call them and cajole them to the polls! Find out when your own state’s primaries will be held, and identify your current polling place here. It is absolutely critical to show up this year — and every year — to build a truly progressive future.

Every. Vote. Matters. Check your voter registration status and polling place to ensure you’re prepared for upcoming primaries and the midterms — and tell your network of like-minded friends and family to do the same on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, at the park, in the bleachers, in the pews, at the dinner table, and anywhere else you can!

Tomorrow, progressive champion and immigration lawyer Jessica Cisneros is running to unseat one of the most conservative roadblocks in the Democratic party, anti-choice Rep. Henry Cuellar. Cuellar won his last primary battle against Cisneros by a mere 2,000 votes; this race is absolutely winnable, and we must rally to make it a reality.

The Cisneros campaign needs all hands on deck to get out the vote in Texas’ 28th district! Join a virtual phonebank event this evening and/or tomorrow and talk to voters in TX-28 about Cisneros’ vision for victory — if you can spare just two hours, your service could be the difference!

Every meaningful electoral victory shares a common thread: progressives turning out in full force on Election Day. Check your voter registration status at odaction.com/vote and make sure you’re ready to do your part in upcoming primaries and the midterms to win Congress and more.
