“What more can I do?” I keep asking that of myself.
There are many ways that you and I can help rock the vote and ensure that Hillary shatters the glass ceiling and becomes the first woman president…with coattails.
I realize that everyone has many things to do in their ordinary day in their everyday life. But this election is far from ordinary, and the results will most certainly affect our everyday lives. This is the last week for us to step it up and do something more. I am asking all of you to become a little bit more involved because the stakes are so high.
What happens next Tuesday will not only affect the next 4 years but decades if a SCOTUS is appointed from a republican president. Yes, even if Hillary wins, the republicans will try and deny anyone on Hillary’s list, shouting that we don’t need anyone to replace Scalia. (We’ll deal with that when we get to that point.) However, on the other hand if Trump wins and the senate remains red, you can bet that position will be filled by a conservative asap. And that reign will affect everything.
Even if you only have nights and this weekend, there is still so much that you can do to support Hillary and the Dems.
- Make sure that you friends and family are registered. Registration is over in many states but NOT ALL:
- If you’re still not registered, you can register even up until election day in some states. Click here to see which states.
- Join Hillary’s team: It’s not too late to join and be a part of herstory. Click here to sign up and find out what you can do between now and election day. You can also visit Democrats.org. There are plenty of ways to help so find one that suits you best. I get daily texts of how I can support Hillary. I do as many as I can. It’s never too late.
- Make phone calls. I personally enjoy the energy of being around a lot of Dems excited about this election so I encourage you to get to your local call center (Californians click here) and join in. It’s fun to engage with likeminded dems and a wonderful way to support Hillary.
- If you can’t make it to a local call center you can make phone calls right from your home or on your cell from your favorite coffee house. Don’t worry about being a newbie, all you have to do is follow the script and be your wonderful self! Easy peasy. Here’s two ways you can make phone calls:
- Donate Money. I get texts to donate just $1. Imagine if we all donated $1 what a huge impact we collectively would do!
- VOTE. Then Help your family and friends get to the polls so they can vote. There is nothing more important than to ensure that once someone is registered that they actually make it to the polls and vote.
- Vote early and get others to do the same. Why wait? Got vote and then help others get to the polls. Offer to carpool and pick up friends and family that can’t drive or are on limited time.
- Sign the Voter’s Pledge and vote on Election Day. Sign up by clicking here:
Voting matters. It empowers communities, and brings us together as Americans. It makes your voice heard by signaling to people in charge what matters most.
Voting should be easy, inclusive, and awesome. On Election Day, the best response to any attempts to make casting a ballot more difficult is for us to get to the polls — and to get our friends, family, and neighbors there, too.
Stand up for democracy now by pledging to vote and to help others exercise their right with these four simple steps:
- Make a Plan: Verify your voter registration status, find your polling location, and learn what’s on your ballot.
- Sign up for Reminders: You’re more likely to vote if you get emails or text reminders. Sign up here.
- Tell your friends and family that you plan to vote. Research has shown that this simple act can increase turnout.
- Protect the Vote: Spread the word about the people who are here to help. Call 866-OUR-VOTE if you have problems on Election Day — they are nonpartisan volunteers who’ve got your back.
Sign now to pledge to vote and to help others exercise their right. After you sign, we’ll send you a reminder of the steps you can take to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard.
- Californians: Confused about the Propositions? Click here for a list of California’s Propositions (You need to scroll down a bit to see them), and how the Democrats are suggesting you vote for them, as well as local endorsements. Take down the Proposition numbers and google them if you aren’t clear what each one is all about.
Readers: Thank you for everything that you’ve done and are doing the ensure a win for Hillary. I am so grateful. If you have anything to report please do so here so that we can all be kept abreast of everything going on between now and election day. Thanks.
Tatonga: You are very welcome. I wish I could do more. I’m pleased President Obama has finally made some remarks about what is going on and hopeful that the Army Corps of Engineers are considering an alternative route for the project. Like Bernie Sanders though, I agree that the pipeline work should stop until the Army Corps review is completed. Much love to you and yours.
#NastyBitch: Love it! Wise words.
Congratulations to the Cubs for their historic big win!
Peace & Love: “Live it, Give it.”
