Why Vote EVERY Election?

Why Vote Every Election?

In 2017 just one vote in Virginia’s 94th District gave Republicans control of Virginia’s House of Delegates! Your vote can make a HUGE difference!

NOT VOTING causes gridlock, empowers corruption, prevents fair elections!

VOTE to End Gridlock: In 2008 69 million people voted for Obama. In 2010, 26 million of them did not vote, almost a 40% drop!  That huge Democratic drop-off let Republicans win control of the U.S. House of Representatives, starting the gridlock that killed Hope & Change.

VOTE to End Corruption: After losing in 2008, Karl Rove and Republicans plotted to rig elections nationwide in order to takeover Congress: REDMAP. They flooded dark Big Money into local races, sweeping state houses so the GOP could control redistricting after the 2010 census. REDMAP gerrymandering used Big Data to rig elections so effectively, in 2012, the GOP won eight of Virginia’s 11 U.S. House seats despite Democrat Tim Kaine winning the U.S. Senate race statewide by 6%!

VOTE to Ensure Fair Elections: The 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!
