Take Advantage of the Opportunity to Vote Before The Opportunity to Vote is Taken Away
There are so many great democratic candidates running for office who understand the importance of the time we are in.
President Biden and VP Kamala Harris were delayed taking power due to an attempt by anti-American forces who took over the Capitol trying to prevent the peaceful transfer of power and continuation of the American Democracy and democratic processes.
Their republican opponents supported and continue to support The Big Lie and they have vowed to work hard to prevent future fair elections should they gain/return to power.
Stated again, republicans are asking voters to help them end America and hand it over to theocratic extremists who will limit access to voting, be in charge of women’s health care, end the investigation into the leaders of the January 6th insurrection, and end all support to Ukraine in their war against Russia.
The job of voters is to reject the republican hatred and provide more Senate, House, and Gubernatorial support for President Biden /VP Harris administration so that they may continue pushing America forward, not backwards.
Infrastructure, health care, insulin costs, digital access for cities and rural communities, NATO support, student debt relief, legalizing marijuana, funding climate help and food safety, and placing additional qualified judges on the bench, are continuing priorities for the progressive dynamic duo.
There’s a lot of the line and it is critically important that voters, vote. Sitting out should not be an option when so much is at stake for all Americans — white, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, small business owners, students, military, homeless/unhoused, senior citizens, children, public schools, homeowners, and YOU.

Whichever is the requirement for your State, City, district, please know ahead of time so that you are not turned away!
Take advantage of the opportunity to vote before the opportunity to vote is taken away.
