Still Time Left: Phonebank for CA

Our action from yesterday is still relevant, so please make calls if you havent!

The primary elections in California are this Tuesday, June 5 – and there are three districts where this could be disastrous for Democrats. That means we have three days to get out the vote to make sure we don’t lose three House seats before the midterms even start.

In California, Democrats and Republicans run in the same primary, with the top two candidates advancing to the general election regardless of their party. In CA-39, CA-48, and CA-49, there’s a big risk that two Republicans will advance through the primary, leaving Democrats with no chance at the House seat in November.

Action: Phonebank for CA primaries

Start making calls to contact progressive voters in California and get them to the polls. From Swingleft: “Studies show the four days leading up to an election are the best time to contact voters. These California races could be won or lost by just a few dozen votes—your help will make a real difference. After you sign up, we’ll be in touch with more instructions about who you’re calling, what to say, and what you need to know about our phonebanking system.”
