Volunteer now! A blue wave is not guaranteed.

The election is less than two weeks away. This is no time for hope, despair or complacency.  Democrats will only take control of Congress if there is extremely high voter turnout - enough to counteract the many forms of Republican voter suppression.  It is not enough for you simply to vote.  Please spend some time volunteering for candidates, whether knocking on doors, making phone calls, or texting.  This is an emergency.

There's a suitable option for everyone.  If you don't want to knock on doors, you can make phone calls and send texts with other volunteers at events, or on your own, from home.  Uncomfortable calling people up out of the blue, have a tight schedule? No problem, sign up to text from home - that's what I've been doing. If you can afford to donate, do that too.

Do what's right for you, but do something.  The final get out the vote phase is upon us, and it's extremely important to get to everyone who has been identified as a Democratic voter, and remind them to vote.  Click on the groups below to find out about their volunteer opportunities.

A blue wave is not guaranteed at all.  Are you horrified at what is going on, but do nothing? (And no, posting articles and comments on Facebook does not count.) Your choice makes it more likely that dirty tricks will leave the Republicans in full control of the Federal government.  I don't think I need to spell out the implications.  Ask yourself how you'll feel if that happens - and you knew you could have done something, but chose not to.  So choose differently, and let's try to make the blue wave a reality.  Here's your opportunity to take action!

Sign up now for The Last Weekend, and find out how you can take action between now and Election Day.
