ELECTION DAY 11/6/2018

This is it. Today is the day we have been working towards since November 8th, 2016. As Steven Beschloss said, today’s vote will decide if we are a country that believes in kindness, decency, humanity, honesty, women, people of color, facts, science, education, healthcare and democracy. Today’s vote will tell the word whether we reject cruelty, corruption, criminality, racism, hatred, lying, nepotism, white nationalism, and Trump.
The Power of Many was created by two devastated moms who felt the need to act, to do something, anything to put a road block in front of this terrible administration and our complicit members of Congress. Since then we have grown and we’ve joined multitudes of grassroots resistance groups working hard across the state. Together, we have formed a community of ideas and support. We have, without a doubt, let our leaders know that we expect them to work for the people (even if they don’t). We have picketed, called, emailed, tweeted, shown up, spoken out and spread the word. I am certain that resistance groups like ours are the impetus for this “Blue Wave”. We have made a difference!
No matter what happens today, I want you to know how thankful I am for all of you. Thank you for fighting for the ideals that make America so wonderful. Thank you for reminding me that I am not alone. No matter what happens today, realize that our fight is not over. We have so much left to do. Like Robert Frost said, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.”
The Secretary of State’s website has all the information you need to get your vote on. You can figure out where to vote and even get a sample ballot so you can do your research ahead of time. https://www.sos.state.mn.us/elections-voting/
Fun Fact: Minnesota voters can register in person when they vote. Please bring a valid ID, a bill that states your address, or a registered voter to vouch for you. Vote! Vote! Vote!
Here is an article from MPR that lists where candidates stand on important issues. https://www.mprnews.org/…/minnesota-voter-guide-english-ele…

Thanks for this song, D. R. It's a perfect anthem for the day. VOTE! RESIST!
"Justice Choir" is a new song from Peter Mayer that will be included on his upcoming CD. It makes a great "get out the vote" anthem!
