We are focusing all of our efforts on electing progressive candidates at the local, state and federal level on November 6, 2018. We hope you are, too.

We recommend voting by mail (aka, absentee ballots). There are a number of benefits for voters, such as not waiting in line, not having to worry about transportation to the polls, et cetera. But it is also very helpful for the candidates that you support. When you vote, they know they they do not have to expend get-out-the-vote resources on you, since they can see that you have voted (plus, no more robo-calls!). They can focus their efforts elsewhere.
