BADASS Briefings, November 3, 2022

9 mins read

Last night President Biden delivered a warning to America that “Democracy itself” is on the ballot. “Every generation has had to defend it, protect it, preserve it, choose it. For that’s what democracy is. It’s a choice, a decision of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

We are just five days until election day. It’s time to get loud and show our strength and determination for DEMOCRACY by putting as much effort as we can in getting out the vote. 

If you need some inspiration and determination this morning, watch the speech Biden delivered last night and watch and share this powerful 1-minute video Freedom for All.

There is much to do, please help wherever you can and show your support for our 2022 candidates by joining the Statewide Candidate Rally on Friday. Register here.

ALL IN,

Stair

  • Poll Monitors support voters at the polls in-person, answering questions but also connecting voters who were denied a ballot to legal resources. This is a great way to directly assist voters and be our eyes and ears at the polls, making sure that every valid registered voter gets to exercise their rights. Register for a Poll Monitor Training >>
  • Social Media Monitors will identify voters posting on social media about problems voting, and connect them to resources and support. Additionally, you’ll be catching and reporting vote-related misinformation and disinformation. This was a big problem in 2020 and we’re already seeing it continue in 2022, so your support here will be a huge help. Register for a Social Media Monitor Training >>
