2018 Mid-Term Voter Activation and Resource Guide

With the 2018 mid-terms just days away, Democrats are in the fight of our lives. Our very democracy hangs in the balance as voters go to the polls on November 6th.
That’s why the Alliance of Moral Progressive Democrats of America has created this document. We urge you to:

1) Register to vote and/or double-check your registration status, due to extreme voter suppression and roll purging efforts.

2) Take advantage of early voting but if you can’t, definitely vote on November 6th, and take at least five like-minded friends.

3) Become an active volunteer in electing progressive candidates by checking out our AMPD America “Volunteer Blue Resource Guide” that will make it easy for you to find and sign up for the “boots on the ground” efforts of your choosing during these crucial, last few days leading up to the 2018 mid-term elections. Your individual effort could make all the difference!

VOTER REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Early voter registration ends on 10/12/18, but you can still register at the polls during early voting through 11/3/18. To check and make sure you are currently registered, go to Headcount.org at: https://www.headcount.org/voter-info/

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have moved within the last year, you will need to re-register based on your new address.

VOLUNTEERS DESPERATELY NEEDED – VOLUNTEER BLUE!

The 2018 Mid-Terms may be the most critical election of our lifetime. This is what we are fighting for:

Social Justice

• The End of Wealth and Income Inequality driven by tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy 1%.

• Job Creation and Training for jobs of the future, not the past.

• Quality, Affordable Healthcare for all Americans.

• Social Safety Nets for the elderly, disabled, children, and the working poor.

• The Very Health of our Planet through clean, renewable energy.

• A Fair and Impartial Judicial System

• Upholding the Standards of our Constitution and rule of law.

• Fair and Just Immigration Reform that creates a path to citizenship for the currently illegal immigrants and asylum seekers who contribute millions of dollars to our economy.

• Senators and House Representatives Who Work for the People and not their wealthy or foreign donors.

As we enter the countdown to the 2018 Mid-term elections, we have a very short window to affect change by electing progressive Democratic candidates. If these issues are important to you, please consider going beyond just voting and become a “Boots on the Ground” Volunteer!

We realize many people want to do more, but don’t know where to turn or what to do. We have made it easy for you by identifying areas where organizations desperately need volunteers during the coming days. It is urgent that you take a look at the chart below and identify the area(s) that resonates with your ability to help. To make it even easier, just click on the link beside the organization you are interested in and it will take you directly to their volunteer sign up page.

“Be the Change You Want to See”...  VOLUNTEER BLUE BELOW!

The purpose is to make calls into the most competitive districts across the state and let them know 1) there's an election this November, 2) they've got a great challenger running in a competitive race who deserves their support, and 3) this challenger could be one of the keys to unlocking the governor's veto, which would dramatically shift the political landscape.
