Time to Get Out The Vote!

Hi Indivisibles,

Ballots have been mailed out and early voting has begun in CA and AZ, and coming soon in Nevada (Oct 22). It’s time to get our voters to the polls (or to the drop boxes).

Sign up for an action!
Now’s the time! Sign up for one of our actions to make an impact this midterm election. We will train you and offer help and support every step of the way. Scroll down for a list of the upcoming events.

Blue voter guide- a voter resource
Here’s a handy guide that lists which major progressive organizations have endorsed each candidate, proposition, or judge in the upcoming election: https://bluevoterguide.org/. It can give a specific list for your voting location, so it’s especially useful for some of the down-ballot races. The guide has information for AZ, CA, FL, GA, NV, NC, PA, TX, and WI, so it’s a great tool to use yourself or pass on to your friends in battleground states.

Spotlight: Walk Team- Canvassing
Next weekend (October 21-23), there are three great opportunities to canvass in Reno with Congressmember Mike Thompson or with Planned Parenthood Advocates Mara Monte. There is also information below on how to register directly with the Democratic Victory Campaign. Nevada is a ground zero for holding the Dem majority in the U.S. Senate, with an at-risk Democratic Senator, Catherine Cortez-Masto. She and MAGA Republican Adam Laxalt are tied in the polls. He’s opposed to abortion access, gun safety, is an election denier, and he has lots of money. The stakes could not be higher. Info on Cortez Masto’s campaign can be found here: https://www.cortezmasto.senate.gov/

Nevada Democratic Victory- Canvassing in Reno
Fri, Sat, and/or Sun, Oct 21-23
Time: Fri shifts 10-1 and/or 5-8; Sat & Sun shifts 9-12, 12-3, 3-6

We have been canvassing at the Democratic Victory Headquarters in Reno several times as a group, but you can sign up as an individual with Nevada Democratic Victory campaign to canvass whenever you want. Let us know if you’re doing this and maybe someone from Davis can join you. It’s a beautiful drive and if you want to create a carpool, we can help with that. Just email us.

Get on the Bus- trip to Reno with Rep. Mike Thompson
Canvassing for Sen. Cortez Masto

Sat, Oct 22  7:45 am – 9:00 pm 
Meet at Mace Park-N-Ride in Davis

Congressmember Mike Thompson is sponsoring a bus trip on Saturday, October 22nd to canvass for Senator Catherine Cortez Masto’s re-election campaign in Reno, NV. We will meet at the Mace Park-N-Ride Lot in Davis. The Bus will depart from Napa at 7:00 AM and arrive in Davis at 8:00 AM. Please arrive about 7:45 AM so that we can load up the bus and get going quickly!
REQUIRED: Please bring with you your proof of vaccination and booster as well as proof of a negative test taken within 24 hours (a picture or the actual test will work fine). If you cannot get a test within 24 hours of the bus trip, they will have rapid tests on site to administer before you get on the bus.
Sign up here for a seat on the bus

Reno Weekend Canvasses with Planned Parenthood
Fri, Oct 21 – Sun, Oct 23
Fri, Oct 28 – Sun, Oct/30
Time:  9:00 am Sat thru 1:00 pm Sun 

Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte are organizing Reno door-to-door canvassing the next two weekends. In the last few months, we have seen rights and protections stripped from people by the U.S. Supreme Court in a way we haven’t seen in generations. These losses are only the beginning of a heinous agenda to dismantle rights from many people and communities. Many of us are feeling frustrated and want to help make a difference. One way to take action is to help with electoral work in Nevada this fall.
Sign up with Planned Parenthood Advocates Mar Monte
