Iowa's bipartisan Voter Registration Commission unanimously approved a new voter registration form today that clarifies info for Iowans with past felony convictions. Proud to also unveil a new website & resources to assist these Iowans: RestoreYourVote.Iowa.gov #BeAVoter
I agree with Governor Reynolds that Iowans who have served their time deserve a second chance and should be able to make their voices heard by voting.

The old voter registration form remains valid. Here is a link to the new form: sos.iowa.gov/elections/pdf/…
This short video helps explain the process for Iowans whose voting rights have been restored: vimeo.com/461038811 #BeAVoter

Proud to announce our new partnership with the head coaches for @CycloneFB @HawkeyeFootball @UNIFootball @DrakeBulldogsFB. Each coach has taped video messages encouraging Iowans to #RegisterToVote and #BeAVoter. Digital ads will also share the message ahead of the 2020 election. Image
"I urge all Iowans to do their part on November 3rd and get out and vote. Whether it’s in person or via an absentee ballot, I hope we all exercise this right that can make a positive impact within our communities.” – Cyclone Football Coach Matt Campbell #Cyclones #BeAVoter
"There is no better way to engage with your community than by getting involved in the electoral process. Whether you participate in person or via absentee ballot, make a positive impact by registering to vote today.” – Iowa Hawkeye Football Coach Kirk Ferentz #Hawkeyes #BeAVoter

Huge thanks to @IowaHSEMD & @IowaNatGuard for helping us get masks, gloves and hand sanitizer to the polling places for the June 2 primary. This will help Iowans vote in-person safely. sos.iowa.gov/news/2020_05_1… #VoteSafeIA Image
We also worked with Tru Art Color Graphics in Iowa City to produce 15,000 social distancing markers for use at polling places.
And U.S. Nameplate Company in Mt. Vernon produced 15,700 face shields for poll workers to use on June 2. This is all about keeping voters and poll workers safe. #VoteSafeIA #BeAVoter

🚨⚠️ This is important ⚠️🚨
Bear this in mind for the next few days until the election (thread).
In the next few days the Tory's millionaire backers will be buying up social media space at a ridiculous rate. We need to do everything we can to counteract this, here's how:
1. Don't give the Tories social media oxygen. Don't react to their posts. Don't comment on their posts. And definitely DON'T share them. Arguing with them or reacting with an angry face else just ensures more people see it.
2a. Follow your chosen candidate and their local party on all platforms and if possible set notifications so you are alerted every time they post. Your job now is to boost their posts so more people see them without having to pay for it as the tories are doing.

A four year old with suspected pneumonia forced to lie on coats on the floor. This shouldn't ever happen anywhere. #BeAVoter #VoteNHS #GetTheToriesGone
Comparing Tower Hamlets CCG budgets there is an estimated annual underfunding of £270 million by 2023. That is the equivalent of 7500 nurses, or 2200 GPs, or 150 GP surgeries. #SaveOurNHS #NHSCuts

Labour will
✅ Reverse cuts & ensure adequate funding to the NHS, ending & reversing creeping privatisation.
✅ Repeal the Health and Social Care Act
✅ Ensure our NHS is never on the table in any future trade deals.

Very proud to announce a new initiative to register Iowa high school students to vote. Schools that register at least 90% of eligible students will receive the Carrie Chapman Catt Award, named for Iowan who was a national leader in women's suffrage movement. #VoterReg Image

I just voted & was told, along with everyone else at the polling site that we're reg. to vote by mail but none of us are! Even our voter cards say we're not. We had to fill out paperwork & were told our votes won't be counted for 2 weeks.
#VoterSuppression @KUSINews @carldemaio
There was also a number of polling site violations taking place. Such as taking pictures & the line standing behind booths so our ballots can be seen by everyone. People were sitting all over the floors voting too. 🤦🏼‍♀️
#BeAVoter #ElectionDay2018
On a side note, I'm on crutches and unable to put any weight on my foot. The only ♿ booth was being used by non ♿ while I stood for 15 min on one leg waiting for a woman to finish voting. #ElectionDay #vote

Here's a reminder about what’s at stake today:
✅Health care for millions of Americans with preexisting conditions. The @realDonaldTrump administration & Republicans in Congress have continued their campaign of sabotage against the Affordable Care Act coverage that millions of Americans rely on. usatoday.com/story/opinion/…
✅ Your hard earned Social Security & Medicare benefits. After blowing a $2 trillion hole in the deficit to give a tax break to Trump's wealthy & well-connected friends @senatemajldr wants to gut these lifelines for seniors in order to foot the bill. wapo.st/2pXZJBb

Your vote is precious. It’s how you stand against cruelty. It’s how you preserve democracy.

Marginalized people are fighting GOP voter suppression nation wide. Students in black colleges. Native Americans in ND.

Don’t take the awesome power of your vote for granted. #BeAVoter
I just printed up my sample ballot, and set text reminders for myself. I’m prepared, and I can’t wait to #BeAVoter on Tues.

How about you?

In the past few days, Trump admitted why he lies. He lies for political & personal gain. Big surprise.

Trump is transactional. He believes you’re either winning or losing, and he’ll say anything to win, no matter who it hurts.

We have a word for that. EVIL. #BeAVoter
Trump’s admissions:
👉He calls the press the enemy of the people to rile up GOP voters. He doesn’t care about the danger it puts them in, because it helped him win the election. Irresponsible.

ajc.com/blog/politics/…
👉He admits that he lies, but tries to tell the truth when he can. When it’s politically expedient to him.

Translation: Trump only tells the truth when he can gain something out of it. If he gains more from telling a lie, he ALWAYS WILL.

As the midterms approach, I’ve been thinking a lot about Robert Mallard, who was lynched in Georgia 70 years ago this year for having the audacity to vote. #Midterms2018 #BeAVoter 1/
African Americans who were 10 that year - and would have been fully able to comprehend the event - will have the chance to vote for an African-American woman to be governor of Georgia. That is amazing #Midterms2018 #BeAVoter 2/
But it also highlights how so much of what we take for granted wasn’t the case within the memory of people still very much with us. Heck, Ruth Bader Ginsburg was 15 when Robert Mallard was lynched. #Midterms2018 #BeAVoter 3/

Millennials: surveys say about 55% of you will vote in the midterms, but if you really #GOTV, you could determine this election.

Not an exaggeration. This could be the most important election of your lives, and many key issues are super important to you. Let’s talk.

🗳Want affordable health insurance, with preexisting conditions? No bankruptcy from medical bills?

Dems gave us Obamacare, with zero GOP votes. The GOP voted 70+ times to repeal. They cost insurance of 13 million by repealing the ind mndate. They promise to finish the job. /2
My story. I was a healthy 34 year old until one day I wasn’t. It was before Obamacare had taken effect.

I was insured with a low cost plan, the type the GOP champions as a replacement for Obamacare.

I was financially ruined.
It could happen to you. /3

🔷🗳️Please vote for Bill Nelson @NelsonForSenate! Rick Scott Ad Claims He Supports Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions, but Past Actions Suggest Otherwise

newsweek.com/florida-rick-s…
Listen to Scott's wording here: "I support forcing insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions." What he's leaving out is that he'll support forcing companies to cover pre-existing conditions IF & ONLY IF they can jack up your insurance premium.

💥Rick Scott supports letting the insurance company jack up the premium to the point where you can't afford it anymore. Either that or you suck it up and pay for it anyway. Either way, the insurance companies win.

Ending birthright citizenship is a distraction, but shows how warped the GOP view of America has become.

There are only 21 million naturalized citizens in the US, .06% of the pop. We’re almost all birthright citizens.

The GOP just wants to leave out the brown people. #BeAVoter
Goes without saying that Trump lied. Ending birthright citizenship is a clear violation of the 14th amendment, could not be achieved by exec order or by Congress.

To watch Republicans clamber all over themselves to back him up, just a lie to motivate racist voters. Astounding.
Silver lining:
Steve King (R-IA) is losing ground to J.D. Scholten @Scholten4Iowa in the polls. King (45) to Scholten (44), just one point off.

The chairman of the House Republican Election Committee has denounced King. 👇

The Trump racism strategy is failing.

OK, this goes out to all the young people still wondering if voting is worth it, despite the horrors of this past week and this past 2 years. Yes, your 1 vote, out of thousands or even millions, matters. Here's an example why. Imagine a Dem and a Rep running in your district /1
of 100 residents/voters, and the Rep always wins, about 60-40. So does your Dem vote even matter if your candidate is going to lose? YES. The winner has to represent all 100, not just the 60 who voted for him/her. So how does the winner know what the 40 want? Who they are? /2
By their vote. Compare, if the vote were 60 to 0, the winner has no idea who the 40 are that didn't vote or what they expect from their representative. But if those 40 do vote, their voices are heard. And that winner has the info needed to represent. And if he/she fails, then/3

At least 8 gunned down this morning in the midst of worship in a Pittsburgh synagogue. Monstrous hate crime.

They join 30,000 Americans killed by guns each year. 75% of Americans want common sense gun reform.

YET THE GOP DOES NOTHING

How much do 30,000 lives cost?💵
#BeAVoter
12 people plus 3 police officers shot. At least 8 dead. During a worship service.

The gunman shouted anti-Semitic slurs. Armed with an AR-15 rifle, and multiple hand guns.

How much longer till we come to our senses? #BeAVoter

nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna9…
75% of Americans want common sense gun control.

94% want mandatory comprehensive background checks.

81% banning bump stocks.

73% banning high capacity clips.

72% banning assault weapons.

Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.

🍑Lucy McBath @LucyWins2018: Mother, Wife, Businesswoman, Activist for Social Justice.

🗣️You might recognize her from the 2016 #Democratic Convention: she represented Mothers of the Movement, a group of women whose African American children have been killed by gun violence.
🍑She intended to run for the #Georgia Legislature, but after the Parkland #Florida shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she decided her aspirations weren’t high enough. #NeverAgainMSD #BeAVoter
🍑She’s running for Congress in George’s 6th District and could use your help because she’s in a tight race. She’s running against the SAME NRA-backed, A-rated Republican that Jon Ossoff ran against in a runoff election in June 2017. Ossoff should have won back then.
