Today’s Action: Celebration rallies TODAY – and more ballot curing this weekend!

The results of the election still have not been finalized. But look. Come on. The writing is on the wall (not a literal wall, a metaphorical wall, like the one Mexico paid for).

And while we wait for the exact voter counts, the close races in Georgia and Arizona are particularly worth celebrating. Georgia hasn’t gone blue since 1992. And only one Democratic candidate has won Arizona in the past 70 years – Looks like Joe will be the second.

But Trump is still working to undermine the results of the election with false claims of voter fraud and a refusal to commit to a transition of any kind. So this weekend, we’ve got TWO actions for you!

Attend a #VotersDecided rally near you!

Today, progressives around the country are gathering for combo celebration-and-count-every-vote rallies. The GOP will fight until January 20th to throw out legally cast votes in order to steal this election. But our party is fighting to count EVERY vote and honor what the voters have decided! Search for the event nearest you, and remember to wear a mask and practice social distancing!

Help ballot curing in Nevada and North Carolina!

Our path forward is counting every vote, every election…and that includes helping voters who have been caught by GOP voter suppression or under-funded election offices! Nevada and North Carolina have thousands of rejected Democratic ballots. The local Democratic parties need your help contacting those voters before the deadline to submit corrections. Remember, more is at stake than just the Presidential election: a Senate seat in North Carolina, a House seat in Nevada, and MANY down-ballot races are still up for grabs, and every Democratic vote counts! Sign up to make calls for ballot curing in Nevada and North Carolina!

Choose one or both actions to take this weekend…and thank you for continuing to fight for democracy in this country, even though many of our leaders won’t!
