In 2017 just one vote in Virginia’s 94th District gave Republicans control of Virginia’s House of Delegates, so the Republicans still block Democratic bills from even being debated! Your vote can make a HUGE difference! VOTE!
NOT VOTING kills progress, empowers corruption, rigs elections!
VOTE! to Keep Progress Going: Only voting once every four years in Presidential elections undermines the progress you voted for. In 2008 69 million voted for Obama, but 26 million of them didn’t show up to VOTE in the 2010 midterms – an almost 40% drop-off. Their NOT VOTING in non-Presidential elections let the Republicans takeover the US House of Representatives, and kill “Hope & Chance” and kill Progress.
VOTE! to End Corruption: After losing in 2008, Republicans flooded dark Big Money into local 2010 races nationwide, sweeping state houses so that the GOP could control redistricting after the 2010 census. REDMAP gerrymandering used Big Data to rig our elections, locking in eight of VA’s 11 US House seats for the GOP in 2012 even though the Democrats won the US Senate race in VA by 6%!
VOTE! to Ensure Fair Elections: Democratic Platform declares: “Americans’ right to vote is sacred… we must make it easier to vote, not harder… Big money is downing out voices of everyday Americans… Democrats support a constitutional amendment to overturn.. Citizens United… to end secret, unaccountable money in politics, to end partisan gerrymandering… to overhaul the FEC so there is real enforcement of campaign finance laws.” The Republican Platform ignores Big Money corruption, ignores gerrymandering, and makes it harder to register and vote!
