Action 2: Commit to a Get out The Vote Activity
These are the crucial races here and around the country that can use your help: 1) the State Senate races in Washington’s 45th and 31st districts could flip control of the Washington State Senate 2) Burien city council races have progressive democrats facing down white supremacist, anti-immigrant forces, and 3) the Virginia governor and legislature races could determine the future of voting rights and of the 2018 midterms.
