Today’s Action: The Last Weekend – Sign up for time slots!

Midterms are two weeks away, and our absolute best chance to alter the course of Trump’s agenda lays in changing the landscape of Congress and state legislatures. The House has 84 competitive seats, and we only need to win 23 of them to take the majority. In the Senate, we must gain two seats. And, we need Democratic victories at the state level to fight insidious GOP voter suppression tactics, which target people of color, the poor, and the elderly, and have led to historic degrees of gerrymandering that favor Republican outcomes.

Republicans have made their agenda and unwillingness to compromise perfectly clear the past two years, from blocking the DREAM Act to sabotaging the ACA to confirming accused sexual predator Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Which means our greatest priority over the next two weeks is voting out Trump’s henchmen — by ensuring every single Democrat turns out to vote for midterms on November 6.

Study after study shows that the best way to get out the vote is having conversations in the four days leading up to Election Day. Just voting isn’t enough — The Last Weekend is asking us to dedicate as little as three hours November 3-6 to talking with fellow voters in nearby swing districts and pushing us through an Election Day victory.

Sign up to volunteer three hours during The Last Weekend, November 3-6. Get Out The Vote in the most effective way — by talking with fellow voters in the districts that need the biggest push!

We have exciting momentum humming in Nevada (where Senate Democratic nominee Jacky Rosen is currently two points of ahead of Republican incumbent Sen. Dean Heller) and Texas (where openly gay Filipina-American Gina Ortez Jones could become the first woman to represent the district) but we absolutely are not out of the dumpster fire yet.

If you’ve been holding off on volunteering for election season, The Last Weekend is the perfect time to make the commitment — sign up now to reserve time slots! Volunteer efforts will be what hikes those turnout numbers and Democratic vote tallies. Make your hours count when they matter most for November 6!

Sign up for The Last Weekend and commit 1-3 hours talking with fellow voters. Just a few hours of volunteering to block the GOP agenda and flip Congress!
