Get Out The Vote for Halloween
We’re down to the wire, activists. I saw something the other day about trying to convince Harrisburg to enact reasonable gun safety regulation. But you know what it really takes to get this legislation passed in a Republican-controlled legislature - we need to Vote. Them. Out. Then we'll hold the new legislature accountable. NOW is the time to move voters to the polls to flip local areas blue, so they are better positioned to flip Harrisburg in 2020. Not surprisingly, we have the actions for you to do that! See you at postcards or canvassing!
HALLOWEEN VOTING STICKERS
We’re bringing out the Halloween stickers again this year to tell grown-up trick or treaters where to find their polling place. Print them, cut them out, and tape or stick to your Halloween candy as a reminder. They’re so cute!
CALL TO ACTION - IMPEACHMENT

THE ROAD TO 2020 – CANVASS IN DELCO
We have one more weekend to canvass! By now you know how important Delaware County is in this election, here is an article that makes the case too. Delco is one of the keys to success in 2020 in PA, and therefore nationally. PA is one of the most important states for the 2020 election and if we flip Delaware County blue now it will build support for the state and national elections in 2020. Canvassing is the gold standard to get out the vote. Each canvass will start with a short training. When: Sunday, November 3 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm Where: Upper Darby, starting at 831 Concord Avenue, Drexel Hill, PA 19026. RSVP here. Need a ride? Email us here. The carpool will leave Philly at 12:15.
