Monday 10/22 Call to Action


1. Here are two sites you may not have seen: lists candidates of color and racist candidates. lists thirteen "friends of Wall Street," including Minnesota's Erik Paulsen.

2. We need an investigation into the death of Jamal Kashoggi, the Washington Post Reporter who was dragged into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey and killed. We should call representatives about this.

3. There's a ton of news, but much of it seems to be under the radar. The Justice Department charged a Russian National with interfering in the 2018 elections. And there are ongoing influence campaigns.

Now Take Action! 15 days to GoTV.

In general, we've gotta get out the vote. We've adopted every single voter from VoteFwd in MN02, but there are other states we can work on.

Focus on the state level!

Work for the DFL or another organization.

The Secretary of State’s website has all the information you need to get your vote on. You can apply for an absentee ballot, figure out where to vote and even get a sample ballot so you can do your research ahead of time.
Candidates cannot win without help from us. Commit today to doing your part.
Each candidate on the November ballot has a website where you can sign up to volunteer. Every person can do at least one thing per week to help these candidates win.

Snail Mail Your Way to Victory!
Check out Vote Forward. This program helps you send letters to voters in Minnesota’s Congressional District 2 MN-02 (Jason Lewis) and encourages them to get out and vote. Another hot option is pro-Russia Dana Rorhabacher's CA-48 district in California.
Text Your Way to Victory!
Many of us may feel overworked, over scheduled, and under-slept, but have the desire to get out the vote for the November midterms. We can join MoveOn’s texting team and transform the tiny bits of time in our week into progressive action in key jurisdictions across the country.

This And That
Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day (Saturday, November 3rd–Tuesday, November 6th). Volunteer here to be part of the last big push.
Sister District Action Network did a study on the impact of postcards on voter registration and released the results showing positive results:
