Wisconsin

Recruit Poll Workers 

Texting: A chance to help out in Wisconsin on August 25th. Poll workers are the backbone of our democracy and are the key to running smooth elections. Recruiting poll workers now ensures that every polling place in the state is staffed next year and that voters have all the resources they need. The WisDems want to be sure that there are enough qualified, fair-minded people on the list.  The deadline for nominations is November. Sign up for texting here!
Make calls: The WisDems ongoing effort to recruit poll workers is done via phone. You can call with the WisDems team on Mondays and Thursdays or the WisDems will provide the tools for you to call on your own.  

Virginia

On Nov 2nd, Virginians choose their Governor, Lt Governor, Attorney General, and House of Delegates.

The For the People Act “Politicians move when pushed, and it’s our job to push them.”
—Ezra Levin
 Indivisible co-founder

Although the Senate did not pass S.1 before the release of census data to the states, Democrats are renewing their efforts to find a path forward. Grassroots pressure is essential.

Ezra Levin, co-founder of Indivisible, tells us why.
Continue to pressure Senator Leahy to be an active, public champion of voting rights and to pass filibuster reform. Ask him to demand that President Biden engage with this fight and throw the full weight of his power into the effort. Call 888-453-3211 or email today.“Our star player isn’t even in the game.” President Biden can’t sit by and watch voting rights fall. He must use the weight of his presidency to end/reform the filibuster and he must pressure Democratic Senators to do the same. He must make a regular, firm, and public commitment to voting rights and demand that Democrats do the same. Call 1-202-456-1111 or email Joe today. Join End Citizens United//Let America Vote for their ongoing weekly discussion about the For the People Act. They’ll provide updates on S-1, current misinformation and how to respond, tips for talking about the bill with your friends and family, and actions you can take. Join the discussion every Thursday at 1 pm here. Check out more recommended actions by visiting the Lean Left website.
