Trump was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.

Happy 5th of July!

My #FridayMotivation is to remind all #Resisters how important STATE elections will be in 2019 & 2020.

In 2019, 4 sates have state legislative elections: LA, MS, VA, & NJ;

Three states have elections for Governor: LA, MS, & KY.

The composition of state governments is vital. In many states, state legislatures will redraw voting districts after the 2020 census. Governor’s will need to sign off on those districts.
State governments also pass legislation that will either protect or restrict our rights. They are our first line of defense against Trumpism. It is vital to GOTV and support Democratic candidates in these states in 2019.
