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

5 mins read


Mail ballot voting is underway in PA for the May 17th 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! 

  • Let’s talk to voters about mail ballots! Join Turn PA Blue to remind voters to get their vote by mail applications in! After ballots go out, the effort will switch over to chasing ballots to get those votes returned in time! Tuesdays and Thursdays  SIGN UP HERE!

NC’s primary is May 17. @powerindurhamcounty is an all-volunteer, NC-based pilot project designed to drive younger voters to the polls by educating them about the offices on the ballot and the candidates running for those offices—all via Instagram. 

  • Put your research skills to work! All you need is your computer and a fondness for tracking down information. Your fact-based research will contribute to informative, eye-catching posts on Instagram for all 31 Durham County candidates running for school board, sheriff, judge, District Attorney, and the U.S. House. Get in touch with Dana at leanleftcvt@gmail.com for more information.


Statewide elections in WI are often decided by 1% or less.  That means every vote counts.  WI  has some of the most restrictive voting laws in the country.  The State Supreme Court recently banned mail ballot drop boxes. Elections are run at a municipal level so extensive outreach and oversight are needed to ensure all votes are counted.

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.
