We will not let hate win

Watch it. Read it.  Whatever you do, share it. 

“Those women from Michigan” go deeper than our governor, Attorney General, & Secretary of State. They’re in the Capitol, our Supreme Court, our city halls, schools, businesses, and homes.  

They’re fighting for Michigan and America with all they have. And so are you.

You can defeat hate at the ballot box, and it starts with choosing strong Democrats in the primaries.  The new districts mean everything is in play.  We can do this.  We have to.

Be an Election InspectorDeadline looming: May 15!

We need good Democrats at the polls making sure that election laws are followed and that our voters are not intimidated. The Big Lie is still very much alive in Michigan, and Republicans are doing everything they can to suppress votes and create chaos in voting and vote counting.  But you can help.

Get the skinny on what election inspectors do, then email chair@washtenawdems.org to volunteer.  Time is short since we need to inform township and village/city clerks by May 15.  Now is the time!
