We’ve been waiting almost a year for our moment, and it has finally arrived! Ballots are out and are due Tues Nov. 7, just a few weeks from now. The time is now for a big push to help get out the vote in the critical 45th district!
Here are two options for you to take action and help flip the WA State Senate. Now!
1. The Puget Sound chapter of Sister District has a Facebook page with many ways to get involved, no matter where you live.
2. Manka Dhingra's team canvasses every Saturday & Sunday at both 10am and 1pm, and they phonebank every Tuesday at 5pm from their office in Redmond.
Spread the word. If you know anyone who lives in in or near the 45th (Kirkland, Redmond, Woodinville, Totem Lake, Sammamish, Duvall) reach out to them NOW. Friends, co-workers, family. They need an email from you. Plus: make a social media post. Get Out the Vote! Here's a sample message:
Ballots are in the mail now for a special election for State Senate. This race will determine who controls Washington State, to help fund our schools, protect healthcare, and more. Manka Dhingra is an excellent candidate for State Senate. Let your friends and neighbors know how much is at stake with this election. Mail in ballots by Nov 7!
Will Manka flip the WA State Senate? Which with a Dem-controlled House and a Democratic Governor will start bringing real change to WA State? It's up to us.
So let’s Get Out the Vote in the 45th. Who will win will depend on who’s most aware of mailing in ballots for this odd-year special election. Volunteers like you will make the difference to bring about this change.
And don’t forget the 31st District: Auburn, Enumclaw, Sumner, Bonney Lake, Lake Tapps. Help Get Out the Vote for Michelle Rylands. Michelle is another great candidate working to help flip the State Senate.
Looking past this coming election, are you anticipating a huge wave of Democratic victories in 2018? So are we! It will require another big effort to make it happen, so stay tuned. Friends of Washington will stay right with you to keep track of the many WA State elections just around the corner.
OK team: Just a few weeks to go! Get involved now, and thanks for all that you do.
