Thank You to Everyone Who Made Truman Dinner a Success!
This year, we had 12 speakers, over 250 donors and sponsors, and 200 supporters tune in live to hear from Sen. Cory Booker, Nicole Galloway, and Democrats from all across the state! We are so incredibly grateful to all those who gave their time and money – we could not have a robust, year-round presence without you!
Attention, Lawyers! We Need You to Protect the Vote!
Show Me Change and the Missouri Democratic Party are recruiting 500 lawyers to ensure voters are protected on Election Day! Volunteers will be assigned to observe polls on Election Day and are expected to volunteer for the entire day. You will receive training from our Voter Protection Team prior to your shift. We are looking for problem-solving, collaborative people who are registered to vote in the state of Missouri. Sign up here and share widely!
Voting Info – Get Your Slate Card, Register to Vote, & Request An Absentee Ballot!
Head over to www.showmevotes.com to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and get your slate card! Our tools allow you to do all 3 in one stop. Or you can send folks directly to make their vote plan, see all their candidates up and down the ballot, and request an absentee ballot here – https://app.showmechange.civicengine.com/ – check it out!
You Can Volunteer Every Day of the Week!
We’re hitting the pavement, the phones, and the keyboard to make sure we win every single vote possible across the state. But we rely on committed folks like you to join us in lit dropping, calling, and texting these targeted voters. If we work together, soon we’ll be “Governor Galloway.” We’ve got 45 days – let’s get to work!
