Call To Action! Save Our Democracy! - Fundraising Links to GOTV



48 days until Midterm Election Day!

Begin General Election Season

IMPORTANT: it’s crucial that everyone read well ahead on these dates, as there are many “received-by” dates that could be missed if one waits until the last minute. For example, in Louisiana the absentee ballot request deadline is only 3 days before the absentee ballot deadline, so one has to mail something in TWICE in the last week before Election Day. I would advise starting the process at least two weeks before the deadlines. Remember, we’re dealing with DeJoy’s postal system!

THESE are the races that will likely determine control of the House of Representatives!

Competitive House Races, according to 538 (as of Sept. 19) “toss-up” or “leans D or R”. If the Democrats win a majority of these, we will almost certainly keep the House --
