Vote Nov 6TH

We have the freedom to choose our leaders and engage on the issues that we care about. That means we can build power in our communities and create real change. Our right to vote gives us that power.

But whether that right is protected varies from state to state. (Yes, even today.) Some states have laws that encourage voters to participate and make our voices heard, while others have laws that confuse and block voters, which lowers turnout — and our impact.

This is the largest, most diverse generation in our country’s history
– There are more than 70 million young eligible voters
– By 2020, young people will comprise nearly 40% of the electorate
– One-third of the Senate is up for election.
– ALL 435 House of Representative seats are up for election
– 36 states and two territories are holding elections for Governor
– 87 out of 99 state legislative chambers have elections
– 34 states currently have “trifectas.” This means that one political party holds the governorship, a majority of the state senate, and a majority in the state house.
-Issues such as criminal justice, gerrymandering, environment, minimum wage, women’s reproductive rights, labor laws, voting rights, school funding, sexual assault, animal racing, voter ID laws, and more are on many ballots in the form of ballot measures, referendums, and propositions.
