I’ve been focusing most of my social media energy on alerting people to the fact that they might have an election to vote in on Tuesday, November 2.
I’m glad that the media has been paying a lot of attention to Virginia, but 30+ states have elections and many voters still don’t know! Most of these are local elections, ballot measures and (drumroll) school board races. I think we’ve all seen how critical these races are to the functioning of our democracy.
If you haven’t already, check out my post from earlier this week — Do You Have An Election Next Week? — and check to see if you have an election. Either way, I hope you will share the post or at least alert people in your state if you do have an election.
If you can spare any time to help turn out the vote, I hope you will do that this weekend. There are lots of opportunities to plug into and an easy place to learn about those opportunities is Mobilize Us. Click that link to find opportunities either in your area or available virtually.
And finally, take a look at this fantastic cheat sheet that Daniel Nichanian put together of critical races and ballot measures that will be decided on November 2nd. It gives you a really good sense of just how much is at stake!
As always, thank you for sharing these posts and for finding time to take some civic action.
