Call/text/postcard to Black voters in the rural South whose votes are being suppressed! Center for Common Ground has all the info you need to get started right away: https://www.centerforcommonground.org/actions
Our scripts are tailored for their target audience, and we give voters information specific to their county. We get incredibly high results using this method.
Thanks for the opportunity and for everything you do. You are a light in these dark times. I’d like to invite your readers to consider attending a Zoom event with Rep. Tim Ryan, Thursday Sept 29 at 6:45 pm. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/forcemultiplier2022ryanevent?refcode=Org_Hubbel He has a good shot at the open Ohio Senate seat. For advice on which races are the best investment check out www.forcemultiplierus.org
With Vote Forward you can write letters from home to help turn out the vote. I wrote letters for the January 5, 2021 Georgia run off election. I’m writing again for the November election.
There are some 6 million Americans living outside the US who are eligible to vote, But many of them don’t think they can or don’t know how . Please reach out to any children, friends or family living outside the US and ask them to go to VoteFromAbroad.org today to register to vote and request their overseas absentee ballots. Voting for us has already begun. September 24 is 45 days before the election, and states are required to send out ballots from that date—many have already started to do so. I voted from abroad two days ago, after Minnesota emailed my ballot. Every state will email ballots to citizens living outside the country. Thirty states allow for some form of electronic ballot return. Some states will allow you to request a ballot right up until Election Day, but no one should wait. Overseas votes are the margin of victory in critically important races. Our votes delivered Arizona and Georgia to Biden in 2020. We also make the difference in close state races. Readers who have any questions, or who would like to be involved in getting out the overseas vote, should email VoteFromAbroaduk@gmail.com. Thanks!

Think of which states have passed horrendous laws over the past year--and are ramping up for more.
State legislatures are uniquely critical this year to prevent subversion of the 2024 presidential election.
In addition to our grassroots efforts of voter registration, postcards, door knocking, and digital amplifying, we can contribute our small dollar donations to support good candidates in pivotal state legislature races to tip or keep a Democratic majority. The States Project does the research to maximize impact for funds raised by Giving Circles, such as our Tending to Democracy Giving Circle (given great support by Robert!). Join us!
I too, use Jessica Craven's Chop Wood Carry Water. Every day I do every one of her to-dos. They are always great action steps, and take less than 1 hour. She's a force. And really fun to read also. (http://CHopwoodcarrywaterdailyactions.substack.com)
Thanks again, Robert, for all you do. You, Heather Cox Richardson, Dan Rather and all of you guys are my source of news, inspiration and strength these days!
If anyone lives abroad or has family or friends who do, please let them know about VotefromAbroad.org for absentee ballots for Americans. It is really easy.

We invite health professionals, such as nurses, physicians, pharmacists, policy experts, etc, to join us in writing or signing on to opinion pieces in swing states like Pennsylvania. These are aimed at informing swing voters of critical health care issues and encouraging them to vote in the midterms and in later elections.. We have been interviewed previously by Robert for his podcast, for which we are grateful. Here is a link to our most recent article published in the largest conservative media outlet in Western Pennsylvania, which is a Republican stronghold with a history for some counties of voting Democratic. https://triblive.com/opinion/dr-norbert-goldfield-dr-mitch-kaminski-and-jeffrey-c-lerner-voting-for-the-common-health-of-pa/. We also publish in media that reaches large numbers of health professionals such as the ANA News. See www.asknursesdoctors.com Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or me. The work you would do takes VERY little time and we provide assistance. Thank you, email@example.com

By Biden margins, these races in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are the top two chances to flip Senate seats. The difference in policy between these two current Lieutenant Governors and Mehmet Oz and Ron Johnson is immense.
31st Street Swing Left has identified a few NC state legislature races that could use small (or large!) donations. These are viable candidates with well organized campaigns. Donate here, with a list of the candidates:
Thank you Robert for bringing up the Arizona abortion ruling today. For those like me who were unaware, today was supposed to be the start of the new Arizona law banning abortion after 15 weeks. Bad enough, eh? Well, a Republican state judge just made everything mega-worse. He said the 1864 law passed when Arizona wasn't a state, which bans abortion in all instances, is now reinstated!
The one thing I can think about this is, the Republicans have just lost the race for Governor, Secretary of State, Senator, and at least a couple of congressional seats. This is going to bring out voters the way it happened in Kansas back in June. Talk about putting things to the voters in the starkest possible terms. A 157 year old law from before the state was a state, when women were not allowed to vote, is now the controlling law on womens' right to choose. If this doesn't bring women out in mass numbers in 45 days, nothing will.
