You can still help

They deserved better than what they got

Today most people will simply vote and go home.

That's not enough. Whether you're voting today or you've voted early or absentee already, what you do today could determine the outcome of this election. The power is in your hands. The conversations you have today, the extra few minutes you take to bring someone who might not otherwise vote with you to the polls, the follow-up with your friends, family and neighbors to make sure they have voted -- all of it will multiply the power of your single vote.


Find Your Polling Place:

Last Minute Volunteers:

The Democratic Agenda:

Voter Protection Information:

There's another thing I want you to be aware of as you and your neighbors head to the polls today. There have already been widespread reports of voter suppression efforts by Republican operatives, ranging from apparently legal harassment of Democratic voters to potentially illegal efforts to keep voters away from the voting booth. This isn't new for Republicans. It's a cynical art that the GOP machine has refined for years, and each election brings new variations on old tactics that target minorities and minority-heavy urban areas.


1) If you're a registered voter, do not leave your polling location without voting. Every registered voter is entitled to cast a provisional ballot.

2) If you're in line before the poll's closing time, you are entitled to vote.

3) You're entitled to view a sample ballot at the polling place before voting.

4) If you experience any problems voting or observe any irregularities, immediately call 1-888-DEM-VOTE to report the incident. In addition to providing your polling place information, by calling 1-888-DEM-VOTE you can record a complaint or speak with an election protection monitor. The line is available in English and Spanish. You can also report any voting irregularities or problems online:

Democrats are committed to ensuring that every rightful voter has the freedom to cast his or her ballot free from intimidation or undue burden, and the've deployed voter protection teams across the country to make sure that's possible today.

Right now you still have the opportunity to do something about this election. Please take that opportunity while you can.

Thank you.
