Ballots are being mailed to voters this week!

Hi Indivisibles,

As the midterm election rapidly approaches, here are our actions for this week:

Sign up for an action!
Ballots are being mailed out to voters this week. We’re in the final push to get out the vote! This is the time to sign up for an action to make an impact. We will train you and offer help and support every step of the way. Scroll down for a list of our upcoming actions where you can make a difference in the midterm elections.

Crush the Coup
For Indivisible national’s “Crush the Coup” action, we’re adopting Arizona: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/crushthecoupaz
“MAGA has a plan to steal the election in 2024. We have to stop them, today. The path to stealing the 2024 election runs through state legislatures. The right-wing Supreme Court is poised to give state legislatures the power to overturn elections. We need to flip key seats if we’re going to stop them.” More info here: https://crushthecoup.org/

Blue voter guide
Here’s a handy guide to see which progressive organizations have endorsed each candidate or proposition in the upcoming election: https://bluevoterguide.org/. It includes candidates, propositions, and judges, and can give a specific list for your voting location. Please feel free to pass it on to friends as well- the guide has information for AZ, CA, FL, GA, NV, NC, PA, TX, and WI.

(And remind your friends to turn in their ballots ASAP- this election depends on getting out the vote!)

Spotlight: Walk Team 
The Walk Team Yolo is in full swing with canvassing opportunities every weekend till Election Day in Reno, Tulare, or Stockton. JOIN US!
Here’s us last Saturday after a full day of visiting friendly Nevada Democratic supporters. Looks like we could do it all over again, doesn’t it?

Nevada is a ground zero for holding the Dem majority in the U.S. Senate, with an at-risk Democratic Senator, Catherine Cortez-Masto. There’s just one point between her and MAGA Republican Adam Laxalt. He’s opposed to abortion access and gun safety, is an election denier, and he has lots of money. The stakes could not be higher. https://www.cortezmasto.senate.gov/
Tulare is in CD-22 in the lower part of the San Joaquin Valley where Democratic challenger Rudy Salas is fighting to hold the U.S. House for the Democrats by flipping the seat from Republican David Valadao. At this point, it’s a toss-up race. And there’s lots of out-of-district money coming in for Valadao. https://rudysalas.com/
Also, Congressmember Josh Harder needs our help canvassing in Stockton to return to the U.S. House representing CD-09. He’s got a County Supervisor running against him this time. https://harderforcongress.com/

We need you! Sign up here: https://www.mobilize.us/indivisibleyolo/event/487197/

Spotlight: Phone Banking
Ballots are being mailed and early voting is beginning in CA this coming week; Nevada isn’t far behind. With only 29 days until Election Day it’s time to get our voters to the polls (or drop boxes).

So please register for one or more of our phone banks via Mobilize so we know to expect you and then join us on Zoom.

We have already made 8628 calls this year and spoken with more than 800 voters, and we’ve recruited over 25 volunteers. Now we’re helping folks in NV to make voting plans to increase their follow-through because turnout is critical and leaving voicemails when possible in key CA congressional races when voters are not home. Right now, we are 58% toward our goal of making at least 15,000 calls!! 

We have regular phone banks set up on Zoom Sundays from 2 to 4 pm and Mondays from 3 to 5 pm and Thursday 6:30-8:30! Each phone bank has a focus on a specific candidate or candidates and training is provided — so bring your friends!

  • Sundays are typically focused on Nevada — and THE most competitive Senate race in the country. Catherine Cortez-Masto needs our support — and we need to hold this seat to protect the Senate from MAGA Republicans hell bent on criminalizing women’s healthcare with a national abortion ban!
  • Mondays are dedicated to our Sister District candidates in the key swing states of Arizona and Nevada. These are races strategically selected to increase voter turnout up and down the ballot!
  • Thursday phone banks will be focused on US House races here in the Central Valley, with a number of key flip races including Adam Gray (CA-13), Rudy Salas (CA-22), Christy Smith (CA-27), and Will Rollins (CA-41); the path to holding the House definitely runs through California. Come join us and let’s make a difference right here in CA!

All the races we are calling for are close, the results matter, and our calls will make a difference. 

Let’s make this a November to remember with no regrets. Help us reach our goal of making at least 15,000 calls!!
