I am going to be crystal clear.
It is imperative we get out the vote, #GOTV, for the November 6, 2018, midterm elections. If you want real change in how our government is run, then it is vital we convey that message to others. Many, if not most of us, do not like what is happening now in the federal and state political arenas. Most of the politicians currently holding office are not and have not been hearing us. Let us make our voices heard.
Whether we are writing postcards, texting, phone banking, posting to social media or talking to our neighbors the first thing to remember is to MAKE IT PERSONAL. Whether we are talking to someone we know, or someone we've just met, it's critical to make the discussion personal. Make it matter. Draw them out, ask what is important to her/him, and most importantly, LISTEN to their responses.

2018 looks to be a landmark year with the number of democratic candidates declaring for the November 2018 midterm elections. It is also a year of unprecedented civic involvement in grassroots politics. The Women’s marches in 2017 and 2018 gathered millions of people across our country and the globe to protest Trump, but more importantly to stand up for those not able to stand up for themselves.
