If you live in one of these, get to work registering people to vote, telling people to get involved to better their situation. If you live next to one of these states, make a plan to get there to register people to vote and talk about Bernie. If you know people in these states, talk to them about Bernie. You can email them the survey in the Bern app. I was nervous about doing this, but 4/5 people answered! If we get these states, the rest will follow.

“I won’t vote for an straight old white guy”

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

My friend (gay, Latino man, mid-20’s) says he’s voting Warren because he refuses to vote for another straight old white man. “It’s time for a woman” he told me. I’m not sure what the best tactic to take is. I held my tongue from snapping. I want to be civil and try to make a tactful argument that Bernie has stronger merits. I think maybe the electability argument? I’m just so sick of hearing this identity-trumps everything argument. Full disclosure- I’m a straight white, male-identifying person in my 20’s. What do you guys recommend? This guy sees himself as very progressive but he’s not big on policy. It’s infuriating for me, a huge details and policy person that stays extremely up to date on the issues, to hear this pathetic of a rationale for not supporting Bernie. He’s a Big fan of the Obamas. I’m concerned that this line of support for Warren is stronger among young people than we think.

CALL TO ACTION: Want to help set the stage for Bernie to get elected next year? Then you NEED to VOTE tomorrow. Elections this year will have numerous effects, from reducing voter suppression and blocking gerrymandered maps.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

27 states are having elections tomorrow, on November 5th.

The massive turnout in 2018 resulted in numerous Democrats getting elected to local, state, and federal seats – the blue wave was real. These gains have had obvious impacts from the ability to impeach the president, to the number of bills passed in the house, and allowing state Democrats to prevent voter suppression tactics and gerrymandering.

The MOST impactful action you can take is to vote in every election, regardless of how competitive it is. Voting once increases the chance of voting again; furthermore, the better Democrats do in elections provides momentum to attempt again the next cycle. With so many disenfranchised voters supporting Bernie, it is incredibly important for us to help Democrats get elected to state legislatures – so they can reduce barriers to voting.

Links to resources that will prepare you to vote tomorrow and provide any needed information. I highly recommend reading the links in order

  1. Check if you have an election coming up
  2. Check your registration
  3. Register to vote
  4. Find your nearest polling place
  5. Get an absentee ballot
  6. Sign up for text & email election reminders
  7. Watch a YouTube video that explains the voting process in your state
  8. Find volunteering opportunities on Mobilize.us
  9. Donate on Act Blue to Democrats in elections and organizations like SwingLeft and League of Conservation Voters

Tips to improve your voting experience and increase your impact.

  • Figure out how you are getting to polling place.
    • Making a plan and making sure you have a ride to the polling place greatly increases voter turnout.
  • Go to the polls as early as you can
    • Lines to vote get longer throughout the day, by going early you can help reduce congestion.
  • Bring friends and family with you
  • Post a picture of you with an "I Voted" sticker on all of your social media
  • Share these resources with your network

New Hampshire has same day voter registration, so if you are not registered to vote, you can register and then cast a ballot on election day. However, if you are already registered to vote, you must be affiliated with the correct party by October 25th.

If you aren't sure what party you're registered with, please take a moment to check.

PSA: Friday, October 25th is the LAST DAY for New Hampshire voters to change their party affiliation in order to vote in the 2020 New Hampshire Primary.

There's been some confusion floating around so I called the New Hampshire Secretary of State to confirm. Voters must be registered as a Democrat or "undeclared" in order to cast a ballot for Bernie Sanders. You can change your party affiliation here.

New Hampshire has same day voter registration, so if you are not registered to vote, you can register and then cast a ballot on election day. However, if you are already registered to vote, you must be affiliated with the correct party by October 25th.

End PSA.

[Rant] I find it funny how easy it is to convince my republican friends and family to vote for Sanders than it is to convince my own Democratic family.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Here's some context. I live in the tristate area of West Virginia. Where I'm from is a purple district as compared to rest of the state. My mom's side of the family is mostly republican and my dad's side of the family is mostly democratic. Me and my two siblings are independent but usually vote democrat. I have friends and acquaintances all across the political spectrum.

I don't try to discus politics with my republican friends and family, but when i do I always find a way to compromise with them. For instance they usually agree with me on the topic of legalizing marijuana, ending the mass incarceration rate, and getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan. They don't fully agree with Bernie Sanders, but would rather vote for him than they would Donald Trump.

Same can't be said about my democratic family. My mom plans on voting for Warren, mainly because she's tired of old white men running for president and thinks that Bernie's heart problems is now the end of his campaign. All my dad cares about is getting Trump out of office. He dislikes Sanders and Warren because he thinks their policies will never get passed. While he dislikes Biden, he's probably going to vote for him. My sister likes Bernie, but think he's to old. My brother is the only person that's probably going to vote for Sanders in the primary.

It seems when I try to convince them to vote for Bernie or debunk all the smear tactics the main stream media uses at him, their response is to get me and my generation to get out there and vote for him.

What advice would you give me to convince my family to vote for him?
