Why Vote EVERY Election?
VOTE! to Keep Progress: Only voting once every four years in Presidential elections undermines the very progress we voted for. In 2008 69 million voted for Obama, but almost 40% didn’t show up and vote for the U.S. Senate and House races in 2010, letting republicans take over the US House, killing “Hope & Change” progress.
VOTE! to End Corruption: After the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court, the GOP was allowed to flood dark big money into local elections, sweeping state legislatures in 2010. That empowered Republicans to use Big Data to redistrict after the 2010 census, locking in Redmap gerrymandering, the most corrupt ever! How corrupt? In 2012, Democrats won the U.S. Senate seat state-wide by 6% but only won 3 of the 11 U.S. House seats for Virginia!
VOTE! for Fair Elections: We Democrats are committed to enabling all citizens to vote and to banning the dark, corporate money that is buying our “We the People” democracy. Click on the Platform to see the difference! The Democratic Platform declares: “Americans’ right to vote is sacred… we must make it easier to vote, not harder… Big money is drowning 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.” The Republic
