If you were waiting for election season to start, it’s here! We’re now less than 6 weeks from the start of mail-in voting (Oct 20) with the final day to mail in ballots less than 2 months away (Nov 7.)
Manka Dhingra needs your help now more than ever. She beat her Republican opponent in the primary by 10 points, but turnout is expected to be very different in the general, so all hands are needed to make sure we flip the WA State Senate to Democratic control.
The outcome of this special election in the 45th District will hinge on which side is most aware about mailing in their ballots, so volunteers and donations will help make sure we turn our state blue. So chip in to help Manka’s campaign today.
Volunteer with Manka’s campaign. You can phone bank with other volunteers in Redmond every Tuesday starting at 5 pm. If you live further away, you can phone bank for her from your own home, just contact her office to find out how. Canvassing also happens every weekend: visit Manka’s Facebook page to find out how you can help.
Spread the word. This is most important of all. Your friends, co-workers and family who live in Kirkland, Redmond, Woodinville, Totem Lake, Sammamish, or Duvall, need an email from you now. Reach out now and say something like:
Hi _____! Did you know a special election for State Senate in your area will determine control of the Washington State legislature? Ballots come out next month and this race will have a big impact on funding for our schools, healthcare, and more. The Democratic candidate is Manka Dhingra. She’s a strong candidate with great stands on these issues. So please talk to your friends and neighbors about this election. Let them know that big things locally are at stake, and that it’s incredibly important to mail in their ballots.
Want more you can mention about Manka? You could also let people know that she’s an incredibly accomplished prosecutor, a mental health advocate and an award-winning PTA mom who has lived in the district for many years. Manka’s accomplishments, her hard work, and her desire to fight against the Trump agenda in our state make her a phenomenal candidate.
Right now, huge corporate money is being trucked in to defeat Manka and try to elect her conservative Republican opponent. Republicans want to raise property taxes in Manka’s district, slash services to fight the opioid epidemic, and ignore the homeless crisis. With this race, Democrats can put our state back on track, to improve education and protect our health care.
It’s up to us in these last few weeks, so join the fight now.
