HOUSES FLIPPED: 1
DAYS UNTIL 2020 ELECTION: 18
PROGRESSIVE VOTERS REGISTERED: 27,702
11 DAYS LEFT TO REGISTER DEMOCRATS
The election is upon us. Early numbers are astounding. This Monday early voting began in Georgia and 126,000 people showed up, breaking all records. The next day voting began in Texas, and 128,000 voters showed up in Harris County alone. Our best information suggests these are Democratic voters by a substantial majority. In spite of Covid, in spite of the jaw-dropping Republican attempts at voter suppression, voters are masking up, lining up, standing up to be counted. You feel that? That swelling of hope? That is the start of a Blue Wave. Feed this momentum with everything you’ve got. Text bank with us. Phone bank with us. Post Voterizer.org on every social media page you can, and make sure all your family and friends are registered! Donate so we can help others do the same. Arizona just shortened its voter registration by eight days because of a Republican Party lawsuit. The new deadline is tonight! Join us as we text over 385,000 eligible voters in Arizona and push out social media assetstoday. After that, we’ll keep fighting voter registration deadlines in every remaining battleground state, texting and calling down to the very last moment that we are legally able, until the very last Democrat that we register in our last battleground state on the night of 10/26, seconds before that final deadline crashes over us. It’s time to dig deep, go all in, pull out reserves of energy you didn’t know you had, and fly across that finish line together. For yourself, for us, for everyone we love, for the country we are and the one we will build. Time to win.
