Today’s Action: Less than two weeks to win this election!

Trump is planning to steal the election through the courts, fighting every close call in the electoral college, knowing the historic number of judges he has confirmed over the past four years (thanks to Mitch McConnell) will be on his side.

Our best strategy isn’t just winning (which definitely isn’t in the bag), it’s winning by such an unquestionable, undebatable landslide that Trump’s challenges won’t stand up in the courts.

You’ve already voted for Biden/Harris, or you’ve set a voting plan that ensures your ballot arrives BEFORE Election Day. GOOD JOB YOU! Now, your mission (unless you want another four years of Trump and McConnell) is to GET OUT THE VOTE in the remaining 13 days.

Phone bank for Biden/Harris: The Biden/Harris campaign has a virtual phone bank party in almost every state, at every reasonable time of day. 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 phone bank options and sign up for the event that most speaks to you!

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.

However you personally commit to Getting Out The Vote, just be sure to do it and then follow through. Defending our democracy will take a nation.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding the vote on a new Supreme Court Justice be delayed until after inauguration, 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.
