If you want a #BlueWave and see a lot of Democrats take the seats from Republicans, then we must get out the vote and turnout our voters. Reminder: This won’t just happen. We have to work for it. Democrats have a bad habit of NOT turning out for midterms. Proof:


If every Democrat who had voted in the presidential election in 2008 had also voted in 2010, we would have won those midterms handily. Graph via The Nation.

Please, please vote in the primaries. There are so many reasons why your vote is so critical. Let’s do this!
