Weekly Action Update — Take an Hour this Week to Help Save Democracy

6 mins read


The US Supreme Court threw out Dem Gov Tony Evers’ state legislature map. The conservative WI Supreme Court banned all mail ballot drop boxes. One Republican candidate for governor wants to destroy the bipartisan WI Election Commission so there is “only one throat to choke….if elections go wrong” and another is actively pursuing decertification of WI 2020 election results. And then there is Ron Johnson. Nobody out crazies WI Republicans. Right now, only Gov Tony Evers stands in their way.

WI statewide races are often decided by less than a point. We must hold the governorship that Governor Evers won by only 1.1% in 2018 so he can continue to protect fair elections from GOP voter suppression and also counter bogus election fraud efforts. 

  • Listen to Gov. Evers at the Defending Democracy in the Heartland Event on April 11th at 7:00 PM with Evers as the featured speaker. SIGN UP HERE 

New Hampshire

The state Senate just passed SB 418. This bill makes extra-hard for people to register and vote on the same day. The so-called “affidavit ballot” would require voters to mail in a copy of their missing domicile documentation within 10 days of an election for their vote to count in the final tally. This threatens to suppress the vote of thousands of Granite Staters — including students and overseas military voters — and undermines ballot privacy. 

  • Join the NH Dems and other progressive organizations in making calls to urge voters to contact their Representatives! SIGN UP HERE!


Voting, both mail ballot and early in-person, is underway for PA May primary. Voting is a habit and people who vote in the primaries are much more likely to vote in the general election. Democrats have a chance to win the PA House of Representatives this year IF we get out to vote! 

  • Join All in PA to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot.  The most effective way to reach voters right now is through making phone calls. Help get the word out to make sure Democrats can have their voices heard. SIGN UP

North Carolina

“Individually we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.” (Ryunosuke Satoro) Vermonters joined people all over the country in supporting three important groups that engage and empower voters in North Carolina. By Wed, April 6th, Grassroots to Win in North Carolina raised more than $60,000 (and counting!) to help these groups build power and elect Democrats at the local, state, and federal levels. We couldn’t do it without your donations, proof that we’re better when we all work together!

  • And now, let’s inform voters about Early Voting for the NC primary. It’s proven that voters who vote in the primary are more likely to vote in the general election. Call and write black voters in NC and give them the information they need to cast their ballots.

April Beneficiary

For more than a decade, the far-right has been undermining New Hampshire’s democratic government. They did this by quietly getting candidates to run for everything from local school boards to the state legislature and by spreading disinformation and creating chaos.

Under the aegis of the New Hampshire Local Leadership Network, a coalition of progressive organizations and the Democratic Party is mounting an effort to push back the far-right and support candidates up and down the ballot who will defend and strengthen our democracy. 

Your donation will go toward creating unified, well-crafted, positive, and truthful messages and developing campaign resources that will mobilize support for candidates, up and down the ballot, who are running against the far-right. This is the key to keeping the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House and flipping the state House of Representatives and the Executive Council.
