It’s Election Day!

From our friends at Unite Blue, a nonprofit organization that “leverages the power of social media to connect and amplify progressives. Our tools empower the grassroots to build their influence and take action on their agendas. We organize for collective action to bring attention to progressive priorities and effect change on the national and local level. State chapters encourage communities to lobby for progressive policies in their legislatures and mobilize offline.”

Elections are happening all across the country today. Please remind everybody you know to #VoteBlue.

Decisions are made by those who show up, and we can’t afford anyone staying home. Democratic turnout is always weakest during off-year elections. Let’s change that.

Please join us today and use #VoteBlue to help get out the vote.Polls don’t close until 11pm Eastern in some places, and I know we won’t stop until every person we can drive to the polls has voted.

We’ve included information on some of the most important elections below. Share it widely.
