Protecting our democracy has emerged as one of the top priorities from all of you who have taken my survey so far. And one of the ways we can do that is by being engaged around elections year-round.
(If you haven’t yet taken my annual reader survey, there’s a link to do so at the bottom of this post.)
Turnout drops by A LOT in what is called “off-cycle” elections, unless there is a monumental effort like in the Georgia runoff elections. And historically, Democratic turnout falls quite a bit more than Republican turnout. At a time when Republicans everywhere are embracing the most radical beliefs and behaviors, I believe we can’t afford to not fight hard for every position in government.
When I publish these monthly calendars, I encourage you to take at least one action to help build awareness of these elections. I have a few suggestions as to how to do this below. Thank you for taking action!
