#Mississippi, join the #PostcardsToVoters team & help #MSSen Democratic candidate, Mike Espy win the U.S. Senate Special Election Runoff on Nov.27th. It's super easy, follow this thread to learn how...
2/ #PostcardsToVoters started in March 2017 as a volunteer-based effort to #GOTV for Dem candidates all over the U.S. Every election mattered to them - from local school board to U.S. Senate races. What started as a few thousand volunteers has grown to over 40,000 in < 2yrs.
3/ Can they organize a large GOTV postcard effort for a statewide federal election? YES THEY CAN! A year ago, I helped with the #PostcardToVoters effort to elect Doug Jones in the #ALSen race. The P2V team wrote over 350,000 postcards to remind Dems to VOTE!

Twitter deleted anti-voting bots

An estimated 10,000 automated accounts that were posting tweets discouraging people from taking part in mid-term election.
Most of the accounts were posing as Democrats.
They were taken down late Sep, early Oct.

#GOTV
bbc.com/news/technolog…
The Tweets included ones that discouraged Democratic men from voting, saying that would drown out the voice of women, according to 2 of the sources familiar with the flagging operation.
"We took action on relevant accounts & activity on Twitter" Twitter spokesman said in email
The removals represent early win for a fledgling effort by Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee @dccc a party group that supports Democrats running for U.S. House of Representatives

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

#VoteBlue
The update to this has my voting experience as a #DisabledVoter.

The place was accessible and catered to multiple types of disabilities including invisible disabilities.
Signage explaining the #disability rules. 9 flyers posted outside the door of the pool entrance, giving the rules of voting laws for mobility and other data.

That evil librul mob, wanting equality, healthcare, and education for everyone. Please, someone, tell me what's so horrible about that? The the pursuit of life, liberty & happiness are the foundation of America and what 'evil angry librul mobs want for everyone. #GOTV
"Angry librul mobs" want everyone to be allowed to vote and don't throw up roadblocks because we don't like someone's ethnicity or color. #GOTV
"Angry librul mobs" believe that everyone should have access to affordable healthcare #GOTV

“Something special is going on right now.
The numbers we’re seeing are unprecedented.”

—Michael McDonald, University of Florida political scientist, leading expert on early voting
If trend continues turnout could be the highest since 49% of eligible voters cast ballots in 1966 midterm, may top 50% level of midterm voter participation not seen in over a century, since election of 1914

Worried about healthcare and pre-existing conditions? Grab 2 friends (or more) and get to the polls. Don't believe the lies that republicans will protect you. They've voted 70 times to kill the ACA and now they say they'll protect you? #GOTV
Remember the big celebration in the Rose Garden for the defeat of certain portions of the ACA and now the republicans insist they'll protect you?
republicans don't care about you. Did you know that *they* get to keep their ACA insurance while taking away yours? #GOTV

Over the past 10 weeks, with help from my family and friends, I have written 881 #postcardstovoters for 25 candidates from 10 states. I am grateful to @DemocratWit, @emyryly @Marypostcards and many, many others who have supported what for me was a VERY heavy lift. #VoteBlue
Today I will write my last 19 #postcardstovoters of this election cycle. I am writing 19 more #postcards so that my total count reaches a nice round 900 postcards. Was it enough? Is it ever enough? I cannot answer that question. Only time will tell. #VoteToSaveAmerica
Being a part of this #postcardstovoters movement I've witnessed an incredible wave of Goodwill and support from other hopeful people who still believe in Democracy and the power of putting a pen to paper. I have been filled with heart filled optimism. #BlueWave

Days after Dems received pipe bombs and a conservative shot up a synagogue, #VA06th CD GOP chair Jennifer Brown introduced @CoreyStewartVA in Lynchburg yesterday:

“We need to do everything we can to turn that ‘blue wave’ into a BLUE GRAVE.”
via @IanSams
We can't stand by and watch while people like @JMBfor6DC use this kind of hateful rhetoric, especially while supporting a white nationalist like @CoreyStewartVA.

Help @BlueWaveCS #GOTV during #TheLastWeekend before the election.

Funny, she didn't say "blue grave" here in this tweet. 🤔🤔🤔 Guess it didn't go over as well as she planned. #TuesdayThoughts

In the last week, donations to the GOP have sharply increased. Immigration & nationalism are the misnomers being used for racism.

How do I know that? Because misinformation about immigrants is being repeated again and again as they bet on us being dymb enough to believe it!
1/
So let’s be clear about the facts vs the misinformation:

1) Immigration stimulates the economy! See the graphic above. 👆👆🏻👆🏼👆🏽👆🏾👆🏿

2) Immigrants pay taxes! They are not claiming 10 yrs of no taxes due to losing millions in bad business desls.

2/
3) Immigrants drive up wages for the rest of us. When someon occupies the first rung on the later that creates more supervisory positions and more opporunities for advancement.

Immigrants buy clothes, groceries, homes, furniture, cars, etc.

Congress has the power to override SCOTUS decisions thru statutory amendment or enactment

E.g, in the 1976 case of GE v. Gilbert SCOTUS held that firing or disciplining pregnant employees was Not an unlawful form of sex discrimination under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act
2/15

In response, Congress enacted the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, which prohibited termination or discipline of pregnant employees on the basis of pregnancy (among other provisions).

#WhyElectionsMatter ♀️
#BeAVoter
Another example—
In the 1980 case of City of Mobile v. Bolden, the SCOTUS held that discriminatory intent must be shown regarding changes to voting practices that disenfranchise minorities in order to demonstrate a violation of the U.S. Constitution and Voting Rights Act of 1965.

I’m gonna demystify some terms: Get Out the Vote means volunteers (like us) go and remind people who support our candidate to vote. It’s not debating with GOP voters who hate us, it’s reminding supporters & those likely to support. It’s the only way we win. Knock doors. (1)
Folks psych themselves out of volunteering imagining it’s some big scary thing. It’s actually friendly. If you have social anxiety to the point where it’s triggering to talk to strangers, or you have limited mobility, there are other great ways to help like texting voters (2)
You can volunteer to phone bank from home and text from home via @WorkingFamilies wfp4themany.org or @NewFLMajority newfloridavision.org/out-of-state/. Really friendly and fun. You can even text while you do work if you work from home. It reaches a ton of voters & helps them plan(3)
