The election is *almost* over

Keep Calm and Count Every Vote

In America, voters, not politicians, decide who wins elections. We can only know the winner after every vote is counted.

So far, we’ve seen some impressive wins and some crushing defeats in Tuesday’s midterm elections… but many of the results are tentative. These are early returns, not final results. Big leads will probably hold up, but in tighter races, we can expect the end results to look very different from those we saw Tuesday night. Keep calm and wait for all the votes to be counted.

Read more—including some historical perspective about the blue mirage of old—in our blog post, “Keep Calm and Count All the Votes.”

Ballot curing: help fellow voters get their ballots counted

All revved up from GOTV work and want to continue saving democracy? Well, relatively minor voter errors often lead to ballots being rejected. About half the states have a process in place called “ballot curing” that allows voters to fix errors on their mail-in ballots. Join Field Team 6 to call voters in those states who need help exercising their right to cure their ballots.

What’s next? Runoffs

We know that at least one election, the Senate race in Georgia, is headed for a runoff. That election will be held on December 6—which gives us just under four weeks to get out the vote again. Look for more Pints & Postcards, and other GOTV opportunities on our Vote page, to help secure this critical Senate seat!

About this week’s photo

If you’ve seen our newsletter posts on Twitter and Facebook, you might have noticed that we include a photo or graphic with each issue.

Today’s image is a graphic made by one of our members. It is a picture of blue surf and the title: “Keep Calm and Count all the Votes.”

Keep Fighting,

The Indivisible SF Team

DemCast is an advocacy-based 501(c)4 nonprofit. We have made the decision to build a media site free of outside influence. There are no ads. We do not get paid for clicks. If you appreciate our content, please consider a small monthly donation.

Since the January 2017, more than 4,000 San Franciscans have united as Indivisible SF to march in the Women's Marches, protest the Muslim Ban, meet regularly with our Members of Congress, and make thousands of phone calls to their offices to pressure them to do everything in their power to counter the policies and politics of Trumpism. There is much work in progress and many actions to come.

Members of Indivisible SF are defined by our action and find solidarity in our shared opposition to Trump and Trumpism. Each of us explicitly reserves our individual stances on specific issues for other forums as we believe resisting Trump is more important than any single issue. We adhere to a Code of Conduct that welcomes and respects everybody.

Members of Indivisible SF come from all kinds of backgrounds and political persuasions. Some of us are first-time activists and others have been at this for decades. We are citizens and non-citizens. Most importantly, we are all patriots that want the best for our country and are willing to work for it.
