What will you do to flip the Senate?

We have a monumental opportunity this year to shield Washington state from the chaos of the Trump administration. We can elect Manka Dhingra (D) and flip the Senate. We can empower our state to protect immigrants and other marginalized communities. We can preserve reproductive rights and healthcare access. We can expand workers’ rights and ensure economic gains go to everyone, not just the 1%. We can defend the environment and fight climate change. We can establish a true blue state where all people are valued and no one slips through the cracks.

But we can’t do it without you. As of November 3, only 21.9% of ballots in the 45th District have been returned. In a race where over $8.5 million dollars have been spent, it still all comes down to turnout. When turnout is low, Democrats lose.

The best way to boost turnout? Volunteer. Independent expenditures can’t beat passionate volunteers knocking on doors and urging people to vote.

2016 was heartbreaking. Let’s not let it happen again. In these last few days before the election, please volunteer:
