Today’s Action: GET OUT THE VOTE

If your blood boiled as much as ours did in the debates last night listening to Trump’s toddler tantrums, bully tactics, and wild lies (or if you skipped because you can’t even stand to listen to him), you know one thing is absolutely clear: we must do EVERYTHING we can to Get Out The Vote over the next 34 days.

Joe Biden wants to fight voter suppression, reinstate the Paris Climate Agreement and create millions of green jobs, and actually address the pandemic with funding and resources. And other things we desperately want: placing fair-minded judges in our courts, ending the Muslim Ban, creating a path to citizenship for Dreamers, ending the GOP Tax Scam, passing hate crime legislation, and so much more. Any one of these reasons would be worth making a few calls for…especially when the alternative is deadly.

There’s so much to share with voters who feel disconnected from their power as a voter…but only 34 days to share it.

Make calls to share voting information!

Personal, one-on-one connection with voters is the Single. Best. Route. to winning an election – and phonebanking is our best chance to do it during this pandemic. Phone calls are the fastest, free-est way to connect with the maximum number of voters for every hour of your efforts, and we simply don’t have time to waste sitting around and hoping the polls are correct.

Phonebank with the good folks of Indivisible , SwingLeft, or search for a local event, and usher in sweeping change this November – shifts happening every day!

Write letters to voters in swing states – deadline October 17!

Vote Forward has a goal of getting 10 million letters written to registered Democrats who are unlikely to vote in this election. This election could come down to just a few thousand voters in a handful of states…so it’s vital we reach the right voters to push a Democratic victory over the finish line.

Letters don’t take long to write and Vote Forward makes it easy – commit to 5 a day between now and October 17!

Don’t let January 2021 arrive with President Trump’s second term. Clear your schedule to Get Out The Vote.
