Next Tuesday’s elections are the most important in our lifetimes. Every vote and every volunteer shift matters. And candidates up and down the ballot still need our help during these last seven days.
The DNC just launched a new campaign, ‘Vote for me,’ that makes clear what’s at stake. Watch through the eyes of the kids who stand to lose the most in the midterm elections. They can’t vote — but you can.
“This is the vote of your lifetime. They’re trying to take away your health care. They’re going to take away your Medicare. They’re going to take away your Social Security. They’re going take away your Medicaid. And that’s what’s on the ballot folks. If you have a pre-existing condition, they’re going to make sure you don’t have access to health care. If you have a really high bill for pharmaceuticals, they’re not going to do a damn thing about it. We’re fighting for your health care. We’re fighting for your education. We’re fighting for your future. And we’re fighting for our democracy.” –DNC Chair Tom Perez
Campaigns across the country still need your help to get out the vote! Every conversation with a voter matters. So join a phone bank, text bank, or canvass in your community this week. You can even sign up to send texts or make phone calls from home. Find local events here.
We also need your help protecting the vote. If you live in the D.C. area, please consider volunteering to answer the DNC voter hotline between now and Election Day. Voters from across the country call us for assistance with where, when, and how to vote. Sign up here!
We know that so many of you have been working day-in and day-out to help us win in November. We are so grateful for your energy, your commitment, and your partnership. Keep up the amazing work. There is just one week left, and we can’t do it without you!
