The big day is here! Grassroots groups are pushing to help boost Democratic Election Day turnout in Georgia and here are a few ways you can help. I received this e-mail just now from Serve America PAC:
Today is the big day. Control of the U.S. Senate will be decided in today’s runoff elections in Georgia—and right now, we’re working around the clock to make sure we’re successful.
Over 3 million people have already cast early ballots, and the polls are looking pretty good for us right now. But we still need to keep pushing.
Here are three things you can do to help today:
- Volunteer today with the Georgia Democratic Party to help get out the vote!
- Forward this information about how to vote in Georgia today with any friends or family members living in Georgia
- Rush a last-minute donation to be split between Serve America, Jon Ossoff, and Reverend Raphael Warnock
I also received this e-mail today from The Working Families Party:
This is it. The polls are open for the final day of voting in the Georgia runoff elections, and the fate of the Senate is in voters' hands.
Turnout has been historic so far. But the organizing doesn't stop on Election Day. There are still thousands of registered voters who haven't cast their ballots yet — and it's on us to turn them out.
All you need is a computer or laptop to participate. If you're new to phone banking, no worries; we'll train you quickly and answer any questions you may have along the way.
We could really end Mitch McConnell's obstructionist majority in the Senate today — but we're not leaving anything to chance. We hope you'll join us for this final push.
All of us at the Working Families Party
P.S. It's likely we may not know the results from Georgia for a few days — but we need to be ready for anything that might come our way. RSVP now to join us Thursday, January 7th at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT for a post-election debrief and to hear from WFP and Georgia leaders about the latest on the runoffs and what's next for us in 2021.
And I received this e-mail today from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee:
Last night, Trump held a rally in Georgia to try to maintain Mitch McConnell's Republican Senate majority. Republican control of the Senate will lock in much of Trump’s corrupt agenda long after he leaves the White House.
Deep organizing by local groups on the ground working in Georgia’s Black, Latinx, Asian American, and youth communities is making a game-changing difference. With all eyes on Georgia, everything boils down to voter turnout in the final few hours.
Help power the efforts of local organizing groups fighting right down to the wire:
Polls still show both races in a statistical dead heat. We CAN win the Senate, elect Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, and make real progressive change on everything from voting rights to health care.
But we can only do it with massive last-minute voter turnout, progressive support, and by groups on-the-ground having the resources they need. The polls are too tight for us to give up now — final polls show these races within the margin of error. This all ends TODAY, so let’s make sure it ends on OUR terms.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
