This Labor Day Weekend, Let's Get Out the Vote!

TL;DR: The primary is right around the corner, and our endorsed candidates need your help to get out the vote! If you can't spare the time, you can still help by donating.

Labor Day weekend is for picnics, barbecues, and getting out the vote for progressive candidates in next Tuesday's primary elections.

Here's what you can do:

  • Volunteer: We have a round-up of opportunities below. If you're canvassing for the first time this weekend, or a bit rusty, check out this great Canvassing 101 video put together by JP Progressives (featuring yours truly). And if you're away this weekend on the Cape or in the Berkshires, we still have GOTV opportunities for you!
  • Donate: Can't make it out? You can still donate! Progressive campaigns depend on grassroots donors like you.
  • (last but not least) VOTE: If you're headed off for vacation, make sure to submit your absentee ballot by Friday!
